So fed up. This was so impossibly easy in ArcMap.


I have a hosted feature service in ArcGIS Online.

I have ArcGIS Pro.

I add the Hosted Feature Service to a map in ArcGIS Pro by:

  1. Selecting Add Data > Data in the Layer Group of the Map Tab in ArcGIS Pro
  2. Selecting Portal > My Content > My Hosted Feature Layer then clicking Open

The Hosted Feature Service gets added to my map in ArcGIS Pro.

I make my edits and update my symbology.

I am trying to push my edits to ArcGIS Online by:

  1. Right clicking on my Hosted Feature Service in my map and selecting Share > Overwrite Web Layer
  2. Click Yes to confirm that changes to my current web layer will be lost
  3. Select Portal > My Content > My Hosted Feature Layer to be overwritten, and click OK
  4. Click OK to confirm overwriting of Web Layer
  5. Keep default setting to use description from the web layer
  6. Enter required tags and summary
  7. Keep configuration as-is
  8. Click Analyze

I keep getting the following error: 

00102: does not contain a required layer type for —ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 


There also doen't seem to be an equivalent capability to just create a local copy for editing like there was in ArcMap.


Yes, the Hosted Feature Service has editing enabled

Yes, I am the owner

Yes, I am signed into the Portal

Yes, Sync is disabled (which is another mind-boggling limitation that makes no sense at all)


Thanks for your help in advance.
