I'm using WAB developer addition 2.5 configured attribute to add extra data source and added 3 locally hosted map services. After validating the URL's and saving the configuration I cannot find how to add the map services in the application. Please advise if I can use  a map service and how to add it to the map?

James,

   The Extra Data Sources portion of WAB has limited use so far in WAB. When you add a extra data source it does not appear in the map and will not appear in MOST widgets that use layers. The only widget it WILL appear in is the InfoGraphic widget as that widget has a extra data source tab.

Are you using the Local Layer widget?  https://community.esri.com/message/448393-locallayerwidget-and-accessifizrwidget?sr=search&searchId=...

I have a blog that has some tips for using, but read the readme file too

/blogs/myAlaskaGIS/2015/02/04/tips-for-using-the-custom-locallayer-widget-with-wab-dev-edition?sr=se...

I'm in the process up updating the blog since I am starting fresh with 2.5 again, so checking the process.  I'm also working on a python script/tool to make starting fresh a little easier, since I am setting up and testing on multiple machines. Although it may not help you right now, I will probably post to that blog when I have something that works for me. (may need tweaks for others).

No this extra layer configuration is under the attribute tab in WAB.

I think that issue maybe the layer needs be be a feature service
