Can you please allow users in ARCGIS Online to modify this value without re-publishing the data.

I can't even count how many times we had to re-publish the data, re-set applications, widgets, symbology, Labels, pop-up, attributes etc due to number being defaulted to 1000.

Please make this enhancement moving forward.

How To: Update the maximum record count for feature services in ArcGIS  

It describes how to update the maximum record count without republishing.


In addition of changing the maxRecordCount on the feature service and layer using the admin API.  feature service supports requesting more records without changing the maxRecordCount in the layer. You can request more record by specify an additional parameter called maxRecordCountFactor. For instance you can specify .../query...&maxRecordCountFactor=3.0

If the maxRecordCount for a layer = 1000, then the server would return 3 * 1000 = 3000 record. The maxRecordCount factor is a floating number so you can request 2.5, etc. You can also request smaller value than 1 like .5.

Nice to know, thank you.


From ESRI technical support, the maxRecordCount property is limited to 4,000 for polygon and polyline, and 32,000 for points, in a feature layer service definition. This was implemented in February 2023 ArcGIS Online release. Please remove the caps as many datasets have well over 4,000 records.
