A workaround is to add the scene by the URL. However, this causes you to lose the transitions between bookmarks as you scroll down. Any tips are greatly appreciated!
Sorry you are having trouble building your story. Can you please provide some additional information about how you are adding the scene and what is not working as expected?
You should be able to add scenes that are not shared publicly (from your content or your organization) to your story when you are authoring it. Maps and scenes are listed together in the Cascade media picker and you should see any scenes you have permission to view.
I am able to see the web scenes in the media picker, but when I add one that's not publicly shared, none of the layers show up. You can see/click all of the bookmarks, but none of the content is there. I also did a test by sharing one of the layers publicly, and sure enough that layer appeared in the story map.
I haven't see that before, but I'm not sure I'm following your exact workflow:
Please let me know - thanks!
Both the scene and the layers were owned by me and shared only within my organization.
Thanks for the information. I just tested and I am able to add a private scene with a private layer.
A few more questions:
- What role is your user account in? (I tested with Admin and Publisher)
- What type(s) of layer are present in your scene? (feature layers, multipatch, etc.)
- Does your initial scene state have any visible layers when viewed in the scene viewer?
Also, are you able to share the scene and layers publicly so I can take a look at them?
That's very odd. I'm not set up as Admin in my organization and all of the layers are multipatch. And yes, the initial scene state has visible layers.
Unfortunately, I can't share the layers publicly.
OK, I understand that you're not able to share the layers publicly.
One more question -- are the multipatch layers on a server behind a firewall possibly with additional security on them or are they hosted on ArcGIS Online?
Sorry we weren't able to work this out here, but if you could please contact Esri Support they can further assist you.
