Hi, we are trying to build a system that work with either ArcGIS server maps and ArcGIS online portal maps.  If I do Layer.fromPortalItem and the id I pass in is a webmap I get the following error.

 

[esri.layers.Layer] #fromPortalItem() Failed to create layer from portal item (portal: 'https://www.arcgis.com', id: 'myidhere') [portal:unknown-item-type]: Unknown item type 'Web Map'

 

Is there a way to query the web map as a layer that needs to be added to map just like we can do with Layer.fromArcGisServerUrl?
