Problems Creating a Time Aware Map Service

Hi all,


I have built a MXD which I use to create a feature service to our ArcGIS server for use in our internal web client.

All feature classes reside in our SDE (sql server).

One feature class is time-enabled based on a "date_stamp" field (date type).

Using the slider in ArcMap is shows monthly updates of the data. It all works fine.

If I leave the time slider on the latest month of the dataset I am able to identify only this month of the dataset in ArcMap.

I want the service to show the latest data in my web map and then have the user use the slider to interrogate the data as-needed.

However, when I publish the service it shows me ALL months in my dataset - it displays the data cumulatively (which I have un-ticked in the layer properties). For example, if I identify the data in our web map, it will list ALL "date_stamps" of the published feature Class.

Is there a way for the service to publish and only show the latest month as I see it in ArcMap ?


We are using 10.3.
