Visibility range - Zoom to

Using embedded arcgis online WAB (not dev), I have a map with several layers coming from different sources, some of them have larger extents than the actual Map Extent. Some of the layers (e.g. Parcels) are only visible at a large scale.

So now what happens:

  • In the WebMap, when I use the function "zoom to" on a layer out of visibility range, it zooms in the center of the layer and makes the features visible
  • In the WAB, using the Zoom to function in the layer list widget, it zooms to the layer extent (no zoom in to make the features visible).
  • In WAB layer list widget the invisible layers are not greyed out (as they are in other App templates, e.g. MapTools).

What I would like to have:

  • An option in WAB to zoom into the center of the (actual) Web Map Extent (NOT the Layer extent) to make the features visible.
  • Grey out invisible layers in layer list widget of WAB


  • Are these requests already under consideration or do I need to post an ArcGIS idea?


Thank you!
