Error Creating Overlay

I have a large feature layer from the local planning agency with land use data for the region.  I'm trying to extract just the data and create a map for one municipality by overlaying the two layers (land use and municipal boundary).  I'm getting this error message:

GetLayers for parameter 1 failed. Error: {"code" : 0, "messageCode":"GPEXT_018","message": "Number of features in service exceeds the limit of 100,000 features. Use a hosted feature service as input to analyze large dataset.","params":{"url" : ""}} Overlay Layers failed.

I tried creating a hosted feature service on the developer site, which worked fine.  But when I tried to do the overlay with that, I just got another error message that just said "Error."

Any thoughts?

Hi Tim Ifill‌,

ArcGIS Server Feature Services have a hard limit of 100,000 features for analysis. For Hosted Feature services, there isn't a hard limit, but "as the complexity of the features in the service increases, the number of features you can analyze decreases. For example, if the service contains polygon features that have thousands of vertices each, you might only be able to analyze a few hundred features. If the number or complexity of features exceeds what the tool can support, you will receive an error message"

Running the Overlay on a subset of the data should enable this to work as expected.

I hope this helps,
