Web AppBuilder attributes

Hello everyone,


This question is about how to add logic in ArcGIS Online to fields that are populated by application, not by data entry.


I was able to create in ArcGIS Online a Web Mapping Application that has only one layer. The layer is a feature service pointing to SDE in a versioned environment.  The layer is a polygon.


The ArcGIS Online web mapping application works fine. It  allows to digitize a new feature polygon and populate its attributes. 


My question is about how pre-populate some  attributes with default values such as:

  • Date Created, Date when record was created
  • CreatedBy, Editors User ID
  • DateModified, Date when record was modified for the last time
  • ModifiedBy, Editors User ID
  • PrimaryKeyID, populated with a sequential number, obtained from a sequencer in Oracle
  • Other fields  like municipality or commission district that are populated with the value of the Municipality or Commission district where this polygon intersects


For desktop applications I solved this issue creating an ArcMap Add-In. 


In the old Web ADF I solved this issue using the event:


  • Protected Sub EditorTask1_PostToolExecute(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal editorToolEventArgs As EditorToolEventArgs)  Handles EditorTask1.PostToolExecute


I would like to know how to do that with Web AppBuilder
