How to update WMS layers in ArcGIS Online Map Viewer

Hi there,

I am using a WMS to publish air temperature maps on ArcGIS online web map viewer (which I plan to share outside my organisation). The WMS is dynamic and produces updated air temperature maps (GeoTIFFs) every hour ranging from the current hour to 6 previous hours. For example, the WMS looks like this at the current date/time of 10am (Sept 2019): 

GeoServer Web Map Service

   TempPredictions2019090410

   TempPredictions2019090409

   TempPredictions2019090408

   TempPredictions2019090407

   TempPredictions2019090406

   TempPredictions2019090405

 

In this form the WMS can easily be added to the map viewer, however, when the WMS is updated on the hour on the WMS server with a new temperature prediction map, say at 11am, e.g:

GeoServer Web Map Service

   TempPredictions2019090411

   TempPredictions2019090410

   TempPredictions2019090409

   TempPredictions2019090408

   TempPredictions2019090407

   TempPredictions2019090406

AGOL is unable to recognize the update and simply retains the initial structure, thus not linking to the latest air temperature map (and the entire WMS eventually becomes redundant in AGOL).

Is there a method to update the structure of the WMS in AGOL so that it dynamically updates without having to manually do it? I have tried the 'Refresh Interval' option but this doesn't seem to work. Perhaps the 'WMS OGC Option' could be the way to go, but I'm unsure of the inputs parameters to initiate this.

Any help appreciated...

Cheers, Mat

Hi Mattew,

We have the exact same challenge with one of our clients. Did you ever find a solution to this issue?

Cheers, Lars
