How do I publish a KML service from ArcGIS Pro?

Question asked by eric.eagle on Nov 5, 2018

Hi, I would like to enable a KML service on a service I'm publishing from Pro (2.2).

 

Content is all vector.  Here's what I'm doing.  I publish it as both a Map and Feature service.  However my end customer primarily needs KML.

 

So, I don't see KML as an option in the service creation screen in 2.2.  Ok, so I go to the Server Manager that hosts services for my Portal instance (jeez this is already getting so confusing), and I click on the Capabilities there.  No KML.  Huh?

 

So I go to ArcGIS Desktop 10.6.1 and connect with admin credentials to my AGS instance, stop the service, examine its properties and lo and behold there is a KML checkbox.  I check it and leave defaults enabled.  I hit OK, and here's what I get:

 

ERROR: 'AGSMembershipProviderWrapper' is not a valid extension type for 'MapServer'.

 

How do I publish from ArcGIS Pro and create a KML network link?  Since KML has long been an OGC standard I would assume this should not take moving heaven and earth to do, and I'm probably missing something very simple.
