I haven't found anything on the ArcMAP forums. Is there any way to represent related tables on web maps? I have a geodatabase that has related tables, but so far I am only able to show the feature classes and not the related tables.

I am not sure to understand your question due to lack of extra information, but, have you tried Query Layers?… I think that after doing a query layer, you can upload it to, isn't it? – iamgin Nov 28 '12 at 22:26
I apologize for lack of information. have a well point file with related tables containing water quality information in a geodatabase. I wanted to know if the related tables can be represented in a map. – GravitaZ Nov 29 '12 at 15:58

This is now possible (as of May 2016) according to ESRI's FAQ article on join and relate support in Online, though it requires the use of ArcMap:

Relating tables, via relationship classes, may be performed in ArcMap and then published as a service. Related records may then be displayed in pop-up windows in ArcGIS Online.

Depending on how the relationship class is created, users are able to add or update features and have the related data be updated in the pop-up as well.

However, related tables cannot natively be created in ArcGIS Online, and the in-memory joins or relates are not supported in a feature service.


ArcGIS Online does not currently support related tables. However, it was announced at the User Conference on Sep 11, 2014 that they are working on this functionality and hope to release in in Q4 2014, or maybe Q1 2015.

They are also working on a closely-related (no pun intended) feature for customizing forms, which presumably will provide a better way to query and update related tables than the current Javascript tools on Server.

At the time of writing, ArcGIS Online as a hosting platform does not support related tabled. However, ArcGIS Server does.

ArcGIS Idea for promoting this enhancement.
