I am trying to use a custom tile layer as a map backdrop - ONLINE use.  I cannot get it to work.  I have edited the *.info file and placed the URL but with no success.  I published the layer using ArcGIS Pro.  The layer displays in AGOL Maps.  Here is my layer...

1) The documentation below shows some examples with various stuff after the /tile/  is this important?

${z}/${y}/${x}   - is this a "format" where you substitute your values or is this a sort of wild card?.  Is this required?

Hi Jonathan,

Yes, there is an error in the documentation.  For ArcGIS tiled map services, you should be able to simply use the URL to /MapServer, https://tiles.arcgis.com/tiles/UTBp78iglGpbqp1B/arcgis/rest/services/slrrppc_tile/MapServer, by itself.  We have an issue filed to update the documentation.
