Hi. Can anyone tell why I keep going to opendata.arcgis.com/about when I click "preview site" while editing my private open data site? If it helps, I didn't see this behavior the last time I was editing the site which I think was after the update last week.
Solved! Go to Solution.
this should no longer be happening. apologies for letting this hang out there so long. There seems to be a very subtle old bug here - the Preview link doesn't update in the admin application after you change the site's subdomain. You have to refresh to get the latest. That will be fixed in next week's release.
The functionality used to be there last week. There is no way ours is ready to go public and I should be able to preview prior to going public. I suspect ESRI is working on this and from what I understand, they don't have a test environment in which to "play" with.
I do not think I am having a problem with the same bug, considering that I literally just created my organization's Open Data site today. But I am definitely having a problem that presents similarly. I am keeping the site private for now, as it is just a test site, but I cannot test it if I cannot preview it. Hopefully somebody has some thoughts on the matter.
Update: I can preview the site if I make it public, however it definitely is not ready to be public. It also seems to think there are no datasets available to it, nor does the map conform to the extent I preset.
It's all good, I got in contact with support and everything was worked out. Apparently just sharing data with the Open Data group is not enough, it has to be viewable by Everyone, as well.
