ArcGIS Pro Overwrite Vector and Map Image Services (Map Service).  It would be nice to be able to overwrite services that happen to be Vector and Map Image.  Currently we can only overwrite Feature Services from ArcGIS Pro.

This is the documentation related to overwriting web layers from ArcGIS Pro: Overwrite a web layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

I believe OP is referring to the ability to overwrite Cached Map Image Web Layer which cannot be overwritten on Pro so long there is an existing Cache on the server.  The only option right now is deleting the service reference in portal, then deleting the service itself for (in Server Manager - not stable) or more reliably in ArcCatalog which works better than Server Manager for these sort of managerial tasks. Unfortunately, here we are using "legacy" tech. It's not possible to do all this in Pro?

How do you overwrite an imagery layer?

Thank you,

Thanks,

I saw that, but what I'm working with is not a web layer, it's an imagery layer. It's looking like these are not overwritable in ArcGIS Pro.

From ArcGIS Pro, if an update to your vector tile layer is required, we recommend using Replace Web Layer (Replace a web layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop). This will replace the content of one vector tile layer with the contents of another vector tile layer with zero downtime. 

To update a map image layer on your Enterprise portal (with federated servers), use Overwrite Web Layer (Overwrite a web layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop).

You are correct in that there is currently no way to update a web imagery layer while maintaining its item ID. This functionality is planned for a future release. 

Thanks for your feedback. 

"To update a map image layer on your Enterprise portal (with federated servers), use Overwrite Web Layer (Overwrite a web layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop). " which isn't a work around for the majority of users that can't afford the resources to manage a Portal installation, and are using unfederated servers. Don't forget to check out   which is not yet implemented as most of the core functionality, which exists in ArcMap, has not been ported to Pro.
