I am trying to enable the legend in a tile cache in ArcGIS Online but it does not show in the map.
I have followed these steps to create the Tile cache:
1- Run Generate Tile Cache Tiling Scheme to define the tiling grid and image format.
2- Run Manage Tile Cache to build the tiles.
3- Run Export Tile Cache to create the tile package.
4- Run Share Package (in the Package toolset) to upload the tiles onto ArcGIS Online.
Unfortunately, I con not enable the legend in the tile layer options in ArcGIS Online...any ideas?
Is this a basemap? From Troubleshooting help Troubleshoot—ArcGIS Online Help | ArcGIS
The map is missing a legend.
You will not see a legend for basemaps and OGC WMTS layers. You will also not see a legend for layers that are not accessible externally or that the map author has hidden.
I had the same issue with legend not showing up, when I followed the steps, you did to create tile cache, but then found this blog by Yovav Zohar and using Create Map Tile Package, gave me the embedded legend, if you look at the table he has included, you can see which workflow has the embedded legend creation:
