I am creating a web app through the Web AppBuilder. In the web app that I am using in AppBuilder I configured the layers to display only selected fields in the popups. However, AppBuilder is not honoring the field configuration that I saved in the web app. It displays all fields for all layers. It is as if the AppBuilder ignores the web map's saved configurations for popups. Is there a setting that I can enable/disable so only the fields that I have selected to be visible in popups configured in the web map will be displayed in AppBuilder?

I have been having this problem with the edit widget. I only want the editable fields to be visible in the web app, so that is how I set them in the web map, which looks fine. However once I use that web map to create a web app the fields are visible again in the edit widget. I tried editing config_Edit.json to remove them from site but that seemed to break the entire widget, so for now I am leaving them in. Would love to see some feedback from someone on this post.

As of now the only work around I see would be to go all the way back to the MXD being used to publish the service in the web map. I would have to hide the fields in the layers and then republish the services.

If I don't get any feedback from this post I will eventually submit a request with Tech Support and post the response.

Thanks for the tip we will try that work around for now. It isn't ideal but at least it's something.
