I have made a map service from an mxd with a time-enabled layer. I cannot see a time line in the map view, even when the layer is turned on and visible.
I'm sure the answer is very basic, but does anyone know why this might happen?
Just to verify:
If you go to the item page of the hosted feature layer, and you enter the Time Settings:
... is time enabled?
In the properties of the layer in the web map, are you sure that it is enabled (is is possible to turn time off). It should show the option to "Disable Time Animation" when time is enabled:
In my case, I have not inadvertently disabled time animation, but that is a good suggestion. I am not familiar with the properties page you are showing in the first image, but the layer is time-enabled.
It's not a hosted feature layer - just a regular map image layer, data is hosted in our sde.
I was able to get it to work by putting the time-enable layer in a different map service and NOT IN A GROUP. No idea if that is the issue or not, but after a lot of fiddling, including with esri tech support, a separate map service that contained the time-enabled layers ungrouped appears to work. Interesting side note is that the time slider now displays whether or not the time-enabled layer is visible, but I will take that over never displaying
Glad you could make it work!
You mention that you have a image layer in your SDE. Are you referring to having a mosaic dataset with time enabled? In that case you would need to have the Image server role to be able to publish this time of layer, but that works too. I have blogged about something related to this: https://community.esri.com/people/xander_bakker/blog/2015/05/21/create-heat-maps-of-temporal-data-an... using mosaic dataset published to our server with time enabled and consumed in a web App.
