I'm having this problem now too (July 2014). Was there ever a resolution? Should I just add a test point in the shapefile I'm uploading (and creating the service from) so that this doesn't happen?
Thanks for the reply. Seems like a silly bug. I actually edited my shape, added a point and then deleted it figuring this would help. Guess I just need to leave the point in. Thanks for the help!
I am having the same issue as above. I created an empty point feature class in a file geodatabase with web mercator 1984 (auxillary sphere) defined. I zipped the entire file and uploaded it my AGO organization account.
i shared, published the layer as a feature service then added it to a map. I defined the extent of the layer to Durham county, NC. I created, saved and shared a map. In the map I configured popups.
From the map I then published an app using the edit template. I was able to create a point.
When I return to open the map to change the popups an error message that the point feature can not be added to the map.
I then navigate to the point feature class and select open in new map. An error message says the layer is missing spatial reference and cannot be added to the map.
here is the service url:https://services.arcgis.com/ycIuRaoIC4UuCDAS/ArcGIS/rest/services/Durham_Happy/FeatureServer
It is odd that the application does show the point feature service and does allow users to add a point.
I do need to make changes to the map and i need to be able to share the map.
What is the solution?
