Print Service and User input

Don't know where to put this question.

I created an mxd and then created a print service that I put up in my ArcGIS Server.  I then created an AGOL web application and referenced this print service....This works great.


My question is can I add some sort of user input parameter to allow them to create a title for the map when they use the print service via ArcGIS online web app?  Right now I can only hard code a title in the layout before it goes to print service.


  • I am using ArcGIS desktop 10.5.1
  • I added 3 Custom Text Elements and gave them names
  • I use "Export Web Map"
  • I then Use "Get Layout Templates Info"
  • In the Results tab I right click and publish "Export Web Map"
  • Making sure to "Add Result" of the Get Layouts Templates Info Result while in the Service Editor
  • The only other thing I did in the Service Editor was change the Execution Mode


When I view the "Get Layouts Templates Info" via the rest end point I can see the 3 CustomTextElements (see below image)


But when I go to print I dont see the option to add text to these Custom Text Elements in the Advanced Window. I dont see anywhere in the advanced settings to add test to these Custom Text Elements...


Anyone have any ideas why this is not working?  Or did I do something wrong?
