Anyone know when the capability to query vector tile layers might become available?  Right now I'm using a feature layer with no symbology over top of a vector tile layer to get querying capabilities, but it's very messy in the TOC and hard for users who don't have a GIS background (because they have to toggle on two different layers...).

Or...any other options?

Has there been any changes/updates to this since 2016?

Me too. I've followed the directions in this article that states if you choose the option to cache online or on the server:

"A vector tile layer is shared with an associated feature layer. The feature layer supports editing, querying features outside the current view, and richer statistics."

I've since cached a layer online. It did indeed generate an associated Feature Service and via the settings for the AGOL item I am able to "Configure Attributes: Select the attributes to include in the vector tiles". 

Sadly however now that cache has rebuilt itself I still get no access to attributes. What am I doing wrong here @KellyGerrow ?

This enhancement request was originally asked for in 2016! https://my.esri.com/#/support/bugs/ENH-000095476

I'm currently trying the same and similarly cannot get this to work in the new map viewer.  Hoping for some updates soon!

I did the same as @ahargreaves_FW above, Select attributes and Rebuild Cache. I then added a popup template that includes those attributes in the options when creating the vector tile layer but am getting this error when clicking a feature. So the question is:

Do we have access to attributes in a vector tile layer via popups? Or otherwise?

Again, I'm hoping @KellyGerrow  -  Product Manager for ArcGIS Online - can help us?

Okay, I'm going to jump on this bandwagon since I now need this.

Has there been any resolution? I too tried the method shown in the above posts and it did not work - no attribute data was generated along with the vector tiles. 6 years since the original request here. ESRI can you please respond?
