Unique custom symbols for every single feature

I know that it is possible to define the unique symbols for different attributes of a feature layer by using the url of a custom single image (Change Style reference - Change symbols).

However, I have many features (~500) for which I would like to define a custom (png) symbol.

The symbols are dynamically created elsewhere and stored in the format: 'id001.png', 'id002.png'...'id500.png'... The id### can be found in the attribute table of the feature layer.

Is it possible to create such a layer?

I am extremely thankful for any hints.

kr, Markus

ps: My approach would be to use ArcGIS Online Assistant, but I'm not sure about performance issues and the dynamic updating when new features are added. I would use different zoom-levels, so that only a selection of features will be shown at once.

Did you ever get this working?

No, unfortunately we stopped investigating on this issue, as there seemed to be no convenient solutions that we were aware of.
