Add non null-able field to hosted feature service

Question asked by SnowmakingAdmin on Sep 22, 2020

So this one is really driving me crazy because I think that there must be an easy solution out there. I have a point layer with 202 points in it. I need to add 2 fields that do not allow null values. But it seems that you cannot add non nullable fields to a layer that already contains data. I understand this is because all of the cells will be blank when the field is added, which is what we're trying to not allow.

 

Is there a way to add a non nullable field with a default value set. My fields have a specific list of values and it makes it easier for my field workers if there is no option for null, as they get confused easily. Anyone know of a way to join two fields in a table that are already populated or some type of work around.
