Could you please work on allowing users to publish annotation feature class to ArcGIS online?


I understand that the idea to to publish to ArcGIS Online.  I just want to make sure that others who find this idea understand that this is currently supported for ArcGIS Enterprise: What’s New in 10.6 – Annotation Layers 

Is this capability available in ArcGIS Pro and if so at what version?  If not what version can we expect this functionality to be in place?

You can import annotation from ArcMap, but cannot be edited yet in ArcPro.

Thanks Christy, I'm not sure what you mean by "cannot be edited in ArcPro yet.  Do you mean annotations cannot be published from Pro to AGOL yet? Or that published annotation layers from Pro cannot be edited in AGOL?

Tyler, not available yet to publish to ArcGIS Online.  You should get an error 24035: Layer type is not supported for web feature layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

I'm checking internally to see if we have any update on this Idea's status.

You can add annotation layer into ArcGIS Pro that is saved locally but you cannot make changes in ArcPRO.

And, yes we would love to be able to publish annotation to AGOL and modify it using web maps/ web apps, however it is not currently supported.

I hope this becomes available soon.

The ArcMap feature classes would need to be upgraded to edit in Pro: Annotation—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

Note that the upgrade is in-place to make a copy first and upgrade the copy to test.


I was referring to Dimensions Feature Class.


Dimensions is coming in Pro 2.3 to be released in January.  The model is similar to annotation in the sense of having to upgrade any existing ArcMap dimension feature classes to Pro dimensions.

Thank you both for the information!
