I was looking forward to trying this new feature after seeing it in the Plenary at this year's Dev Summit. I grabbed 30 geo-tagged photos (all .jpg) from my iCloud account, uploaded the Zip file to My Content (making sure I chose the "Photos with Locations" content type and checked the "Publish a hosted feature layer" box). And after an infinite loop of "Creating Service..." being displayed in the "Add an item" window... Nothing. I have an Item Details page for an empty Feature Layer, and a seemingly useless Photo Collection with no option to "Publish."

What givesArcGIS Online?

Hi Bryan,

Are you able to share your zip file? I would also suggest reaching out to support if you can't share your file.

Thanks,

Kelly

Same result here. Hosted feature layer is empty. Has anybody had any success with this?

Are you able to successfully publish these images?

Can you share your zipped folder?

Your Joshua Tree photo worked. I've attached a zip file with a single photo that does not work. 

I did receive the following email from ESRI about this on Friday: 

Thanks for reaching out.  Unfortunately, you have encountered a bug with this feature. The team has already found a fix for it, which should be live by Monday. Try again Monday or Tuesday and let us know if you are still having problems.

Works now. Looks like the fix has been implemented.

I tried again with the new June update. I used one of the same ZIP files as before, and everything worked great! I had photos from my phone to the new Attachment Viewer in minutes. Also, Attachment Viewer... yay!!
