I am currently testing options to share web layers from ArcMap to ArcGIS Online. However, if I right-click a layer in the table of content and select Create Layer Package , I either Save the layer as a .lpk file or upload it directly on ArcGIS Online.

Once uploaded in ArcGIS Online, the shower shows just as Layer in Content. In order to use it in MapViewer to create WebMaps and then WebApps, I need to publish it as Feature Layer (hosted).

How can I publish in ArcGIS Online?

I have the same question with Layer Package I uploaded. How tu unpack it on ArcGIS Online and then publish it as Feature Layer (hosted) ?

Hi Vincent,

Here is the ArcMap documentation on publishing Hosted Feature Layers: Publish to ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise—Publish services | ArcGIS Desktop 

Hope this helps,
