Where is the service detail page you mention in the April 17 thread.
Thanks in advance and Best Regards
This documentation should help you out. It describes the item detail page and the properties you can change on your web layer.
Manage hosted web layers—Help | ArcGIS
I have created a web map by adding a layer using a published service from our ArcGIS Server. I'm don't think that is a hosted web layer? I have enabled editing everywhere I can find for the service.
If its an ArcGIS Server feature service and you enable it during the publishing of the service or after in the ArcGIS Server Manager. Then when you add the layer to the map you will see an edit tool in the web map appear and then you just save the map. If you have the app open and signed into the app with the same account you saved the map with on iOS you pull to refresh and it will show the map and on Android the refresh option is in the overflow located on the bottom toolbar. This will re-load your map gallery and grab any new content. If you want other users to access the map you created you need to share it to a group and the users who are a part of the group will be able to access the map and the app.
I've made a simple map that only has an ESRI basemap in it. It's enabled for offline use and I've shared with with two groups, both of which I'm a member. Yet the map does not show up when I log out/ log back in and refresh collector both on Android and IOS device. I could publish a map before, and the older maps are still available on Collector but I can't now.
Your map does not have an editable layer in it. The Collector will pick up maps that have an editable feature service in it.
Here is my guidance document for our users. It shows AGOL maps titled by content and whether the maps appear in the iOS version of the Explorer app and the Collector app on an iPad. Hope this helps.
1. Upload shapefile (main menu - "my content", menu on the left side - "layers", "add item") - feature layer is created
2. Click "Add to the new map" from options on feature layer
3. Save and share this new map.
I'm having a similar problem. I've been publishing/testing all sorts of services to see what I can and can't do. I published both a hosted feature service and an ArcGIS Server feature service. Editing is enabled on both of them. I created a web map for each and have successfully made edits to each on my desktop. I also can view each map through the Collector app. However, when I open the web map that has the ArcGIS Server feature service in Collector, I can't actually collect any data, not even edit existing data. I can, however, edit the web map that has the hosted feature service. Now the thing is, I don't want to use the hosted feature service, but I feel like I have no choice. I must be missing something here...but what? All layers and maps are shared with everyone and with the group I made.
Here's a link to the web map with the features I can't seem to edit in Collector. http://fdlco.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=f5eed6f9aa4b4940a72c774cc67ac891
Here is what I get when I try to look at your map:
I've seen this when feature or map services are not allowed through the networks firewall.
Thank you Venus for posting this error message. I will look into this. I'll post back what I find out.
Server-side: At 10.2.2 one is able to enable "Sync" in the map service at >Feature Access >Operations Allowed. Could that be your issue? Are you using ArcGIS for Server 10.2.2 or 10.3?
I found this helpful, also:
Thanks Joe. I'm using 10.2.1. In this version I can see the "sync" checkbox, but when I check on it, it brings back a message saying I can't use it. But I don't think I need to use the offline editing capability (not yet anyways). But does having this function even matter when using the ArcGIS Server feature service in the Collector app?
No, I guess it doesn't matter.
Are your ArcGIS feature services loaded into your map via the Add button from the table of contents or added into the My Content space first then into your map? Just a thought.
I opened a new web map, added the layer, then saved and shared. I did just talk with someone from ESRI. I did not have archiving enabled when I set up the feature class. I don't know if that made a difference or not. We did go through the entire process of creating a feature class and creating a new service and web map. I still am not able to collect or edit data, however, the ESRI rep could! So it is definitely something with my phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy s5 Android version 4.4.2. We are both going to do more testing and hopefully figure out what to do. I'll post back with any results.
From Frank Potempa on the Collector forum: Android ArcGIS Collector App Cannot Authenticate with Windows Active Directory
I wanted to add the final information/ clarification to this discussion I received from the ESRI tech;
"While I am not in development and I am just relaying this information, this is what I can tell you. The bug logged is with the Collector for ArcGIS API. Development has stated that they will be fixing the issue in the Collector API for the next time they integrate the API into the Collector application. The new, 10.3 version of the Collector app will not have the new API integrated so it will not be fixed in that release. This indicates that for the time being, to use the work around provided. "

Might be part of the issue?
Thanks for this info. Do you know what the work around is?
It has something to do with logging in as "user@domain" v s. "doman/user"... here is the thread link:
Okay, I finally have this figured out. The problem was the Wi-Fi network connection. When I tried opening these web maps in Collector at home, all problems went away. I can now drop points and edit existing points, which I could not before. At work, my employer has two different Wi-Fi networks. I disconnected from the one that I always used, connected to the other, and then everything worked! Also, everything worked great when I had Wi-Fi turned off completely. So, I guess there was something in the settings of one of the Wi-Fi networks that wasn't allowing me to edit in Collector. Thank you to everyone for all the suggestions posted. I hope this post helps somebody else who might be experiencing the same problem.
