I would like to be able to locate all maps that would use a specific table (i.e. Police Beats) so that I can verify that all maps have updated and are working correctly.  It's a little embarrassing to have a user contact you and tell you a map has imploded and then you find out that it's using the same feature as another map you have just finished updating. Embarrassing because:  1) You can only guess which maps are using that feature and 2) now your online maps have been labeled as "not dependable".  Any suggestions?  How have you handled this situation?.

Hello,

Currently, you can find item relationships between hosted feature layers and tile layers published from them and hosted feature layer views and the source hosted feature layer. This is the first step in providing more insight into where your content is being used in ArcGIS Online.

The only sure fire way to check for your layers in other items like web maps is to parse through all of the web map text for public items in ArcGIS Online. We are actively working on projects around this problem and encourage you to upvote this idea to show your support and view updates:

The Python API can be used to find relationships and dependencies between items. I think this will give you the information you want, though if you're not already using Python it may have a bit of a learning curve to get there.
