I've successfully created an interactive filter in an AGOL web map and then created a web map application for that filter. I'd like the user to be able to select from a drop down list of unique values from the filter field in order to filter the map display and, although the filter is working, the user can only filter by manually adding text to a text box and then clicking the display button to filter the map.
I should say I'm using the filter template and when you configure it there is an option to use a drop down for multiple filters but not for a single one. Does anyone know if I'm missing something or whether there's a more intuitive way of allowing the user to interact with a filter?
ArcGIS WebApp Builder is still beta product and it is known limitation.
Query widget does not allow to present a drop-down of unique values when the user is specifying parameters.
