Support scale-based symbology for featureLayer

I have a use-case to publish lots of Points of Interest (POI) at various scales and I would have loved to be able to have a single hosted feature layer with symbol displayed according to the scale range defined in ArcGIS Pro:

Scale-based symbol classes—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

It's pretty much like Google Maps displays POIs.

But unfortunately I can't as it is not supported.

There are various workaround but they have drawbacks:

- use a MapImageLayer: yes, but then POI won't rotate with the map => not very pretty

- use a VectorTileLayer: yes, but I would like pop-up as well

- use several FeatureLayers with a different visibility scale for each: yes, but then I have to update the pop-up arcade display and labels for every layers whenever a change is made and then far too many requests are made when navigating.

Please let me know if you have another workaround I did not think about.

I believe it could be easily implemented with the great JS 4.X API client side capabilities and it would be a nice new feature.

Thanks for listening !

Hi @NicolasGIS, just came across this post. Does Arcade $view.scale accomplish this for you?
