WebMap/WebAppBuilder - Snapping not working when editing existing feature

Could someone please verify this issue as I am sure it has only come up as of recent.


  • We use a WebApp that contains many feature classes (polygon, polyline and point).
  • We have a point layer that we snap to the end of polylines from a certain polyline layer, we also snap certain polylines to each other for accuracy and presentation purposes.


  • When I am using our WebApp, in edit mode, to create features; I am able to snap a point, polygon or polyline to a point, polygon or polyline without issue.
  • When I am editing existing features in our WebApp; I am not able to snap a point, polygon or polyline to a point, polygon or polyline!


I am sure that up until December 2016 I was able to snap features in a WebApp regardless whether I was creating a new feature or editing an existing feature.


We edit features in this WebApp very often, I noticed this change occur after the December 2016 update to ArcGIS Online.

I haven't seen any mention of this as I assume it may be something that wasn't intended.


Once again, does anyone else have a WebApp they could try this on? I will try a few different configurations in the meantime. The same issue is occurring in the WebMap as well.


To avoid a simple question an answer, no changes were made between the day it was working and the day it stopped working!


I look forward to any input.
