Is it possible to specify an extent for vector tile package generation?

Question asked by azatrain on Jan 18, 2017

We are transitioning from using regular tile packages to vector tile packages.  Tile package creation allowed us to specify an extent to limit the geographic area where those tiles would be created.  There does not appear to be any way to do that for vector tiles.  That was a big win for us with regular tile packages because we could limit the size of those things which made for more efficient download of that data to our user's devices.  I know vector tile packages are drastically smaller than regular tile packages, but it doesn't seem to make sense that we can't limit the extents on those.

 

Am I missing something here?  Is there any way to limit the extent?  If not, can an Esri resource explain the logic behind leaving that functionality out?  Thanks ...
