Setting a refresh interval for web scenes

Is there any plans for capability to set a refresh interval for 3D content in a web scene? We are keen to be able to display real time sensor data within our 3D scenes.

Examples of this may be a moving car or a scene layer feature whose colour changes based upon a data source (e.g. live temperature reading).

We have been able to get this type of functionality working but only by refreshing the browser manually to reload the scene. A configurable refresh interval (e.g. 10 seconds) would open up powerful possibilities in terms of simulating real time data within a 3D environment.



we currently support the refreshInterval property on a feature layer (web scene specification). We still do not support StreamLayers in the SceneViewer, but it is in our planning list and gaining priority!

Let me know if you have more questions and sorry for the late reply!



Hi @RalucaNicola1 is there a way to set this in the ArcGIS Portal scene viewer, or do you have to build a custom app that consumes a scene and set refreshInterval through code?
