The web map that I'm using to build my dashboard has multiple layers.  When I load the dashboard it uses the layers that were turned on when saved as the default display layers.  For this dashboard, I want to display a different layer in the web map as the default. I can add the layer to the layer selection, but then I have to change the layer whenever the dashboard.  I would prefer to not save a new web map with that as the default layer as the workaround.

Hi Todd,

There isn't a way to set this up because it's controlled by the webmap properties. When you save your operations view, it's stored in the org as an view. The view item does not have the ability to store that kind of information...

As we are gearing up for the next version of Operations Dashboard, this might be something that we could look into, but only if the dashboard item properties (or similar) would allow it.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,

Thanks for the feedback. I’ll go ahead and post an idea. Since you can determine which layers are able to be controlled within the dashboard, perhaps an option for visible by default could be possible.

Chris,

I just got off the phone with Matt from ESRI support and the issue is related to a bug in ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 that is now fixed and not an issue with Operations Dashboard.

Hello,

I am trying to do something similar: have two dashboards with different default visible layers based on the same webmap. Can you advise how you were able to do this without duplicating the underlying webmap?

Thank you
