I am using the Group Layers function in the AGOL Map Viewer Beta. However, when I bring that map into the Operations Dashboard, the layers do not appear grouped, but just as two different layers to check on and off. This seems to defeat the purpose of grouped layers. Am I missing something?

Hi Lakshmi,  

The behavior of group layers you observed in Map Viewer beta with ArcGIS Dashboards (former name: Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS, built on top of JavaScript API 3.x) is expected.

ArcGIS Dashboards beta (built on top of JavaScript API 4.x) is not supporting the group layers now in Map Viewer beta, but it's on the roadmap. 

Hope it helps.

Hi @JShi_EsriStaff,

I saw this thread and wanted to find out if the group layer function was available yet in Operations Dashboard beta? I was recently tasked with grouping layers in the operations dashboard legend so that full groups of layers could be turned on or off. Please provide an update as to whether this has been implemented yet.

@LakshmiSankaran, can you provide any insight as to whether you have had any luck implementing this feature?

Thank you,

Hi Dustin, 

Thanks for your inquiry. Group layers will be supported in the next update of Dashboards Beta, which is currently planning to be released at the beginning of 2021. 

Regards, 

Julia

While the beta map allows grouping, the grouping does not carry when the map is embedded in a Dashboard. This is still true as of today,

Thanks
