Since WAB uses the web map than the web maps data will refresh based on those set intervals. Are you saying that the refersh interval set on layers in the web map are not being honored by the WAB app?
data is updated underlying database. I actually want automatically refresh in application. I setup interval in webmap. however in application side, I have to pan or zoom the map, then I can see the change.
WAB is suppose to respect the refresh interval set in the web map and automatically refresh the layer (without having to pan or zoom). If it is not working then you may have found a bug.
it happens to me all the time for all my apps from web appBuilder in the past.
I setup refresh interval 0.1min, and add a new feature polygon in webmap. Then I don’t see the new polygon in web appbuilder app, unless I have to pan or zoom.
As Robert has pointed out, your Web Application consumes the Web Map which would have the layer refresh interval set. This is the MapID used in the config file.
