Popups | Configure links that use url schems

Question asked by jebu23 on Oct 24, 2016

I'm trying to configure some links in a popup on a layer in a web map that are based on url schemes for a custom ios app that we are developing.

 

My link should look something like this:

my-custom-url-scheme://building={BUILDING}

 

When the user clicks the link on a mobile device, it should open our custom application and use the host value to display the appropriate content.

 

If I enter this value in the link settings dialog, all appears well until I reload the web map.  When I reload the web map, the link is converted to an anchor link and only the host portion of the url scheme is included:

my-custome-url-scheme://building={BUILDING} becomes #building={BUILDING}

 

I've tried manually updating the web map's JSON using the AGOL assistant and it seems the JSON gets parsed and any non-HTTP(S) links get replaced.

 

Is there a way to get around this?
