WFS unsupported using an ArcGIS Online webmap?

Hi

I have an ArcGIS Online web map and am trying to display it via the ArcGIS Javascript API.

It includes WFS layers and I see that WFS is as of now unsupported - I find this incredibly surprising and am wondering if / when this is going to change?

To not support OGC compliant layers is unbelievable quite frankly and I am hoping ESRI are looking to resolve this?!

Hi Chris Buckmaster,

WFS Layers are supported by the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. See this sample demonstrating how to work with WFS layers in a web map:

WFS Layer | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.29 

Version 4.x of the API will also support this feature anytime 'soon':

Choose between version 3.x and 4.x | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.12 

HTH,

Hi Egge-Jan,

Thanks for replying.

I am aware that there is WFS support when referencing layers using the API itself, but for any layers that are stored within an ArcGIS Online web map there doesn't appear to be (from the known limitations).

Do you happen to know when this might be supported please?

Hi Chris Buckmaster,

I guess this known limitation is due to the fact that the version 4.x of the API does not support WFS yet. As soon as the API does support WFS, it will also support web maps with WFS layers in it, I suppose.

Esri says it's "Coming soon" - we'll just have to wait (love don't come easy)
