Dear team,

The below coordinates do not work for fill symbol. The fill color is not coming. Please provide support.

You have to reverse the order of the vertices:

[51.50685501097203,25.308767846478304],
[51.513163566565964, 25.30671163006852],

[51.51376438138189, 25.30069796675457],

[51.50848579403868, 25.29557641823031],

[51.49908733365672, 25.296274823945666],

[51.50685501097203,25.308767846478304]

From the documentation:

Clockwise rings are filled and counterclockwise rings are considered holes.
