Hello,

When I add services to a web map in ArcGIS Enterprise Portal (10.8.1) the default behavior is that popups are are set to "off." Sometimes I add large grouped layers and it would be nice if I didn't have to go through 70+ layers and set each popup to enabled. Is there a way to default the popups to enabled?

Oh wow so I found a great thread that solves this problem beautifully. David_Brooks, your suggestion to use AGOL Assistant tipped me off, but I followed this guide: https://community.esri.com/t5/education-blog/stop-configuring-pop-ups/ba-p/900707 and although you still need to configure your popups once, it worked like a charm!

The defaults come from the layer themselves, I believe. If you look at a service's JSON definition, you can see the popup settings there. If you have access to the services you're adding, you can adjust their default popup settings at the source, and it will carry through to any web map you add them to.

I don't know much about adjusting a json at the source (though I do have access to the services), is this is something I can change in the publishing program (Pro in this case)?

If you're the one publishing them out of pro, you simply need to configure/enable the popups in Pro prior to publishing them.

Once they're published, you can still change the default settings on each layer's Visualization tab on your portal.

Ah see there is one of the issues, these are REST server endpoints as opposed to hosted layers. Interestingly, the popups are enabled in Pro and yet aren't enabled by default when adding the service to the web map.

@ZachBodenner coincidentally, I have the same issue with a map service with 400 layers in it. When enabled in Pro, they're still disabled in Portal by default. The only way to edit these is through the admin console on the rest endpoint, or by using AGOL Assistant on the Web Map, or editing the Javascript for the web map.

The challenge with my client, is that all of these are "access denied". But we soldier on!
