WMS as Basemaps in Web AppBuilder for Developer

I saw that WMS was not supported as basemaps in Web AppBuilder. (Basemaps gallery widget)

I can add one but it does not respond.

I'm using Portal for ArcGIS and Web App Builder for Developer.

It's possible to have WMS as Basemaps in Portal.

Do I miss somethings? or..

Am i the only one who think it would be useful to use WMS service as Basemaps in WAB?

I am having the same issue.  I have a WMS service that I would like to use as a basemap within WAB.  The basemap is available in Portal but does not respond in WAB.  Doesn't make sense to me.

it is possible to use WMS in the basemap gallery. follow these steps:

  • create a web map with the WMS that you then save and share with the world
  • create a basemap group that you share with the world
  • share the new WMS web map with this group
now when you access the Basemap icon in the viewer, you'll see it as a basemap.
