Is it possible to edit a related table via the browser in ArcGIS Online?

The last update I heard in February was only available via ArcGIS Collector.

I was wondering if ArcGIS Online supports this process through an online web map or web mapping application. We are currently using 10.3.1.

  • do you have your own arcgis server up and running? if so it is possible using FeatureServer. But just let us know if you have it and I can explain how to get it functional. – MDHald Aug 31 '15 at 14:59
  • Thank you for your response! Yes, we do. Our server has also been upgraded to 10.3.1 – dvdb Aug 31 '15 at 15:06
  • okay perfect! can you explain a bit about the related tables. are you using "relate" function on the shapefile? and how is the data being stored (an sde? or a shapefile?) – MDHald Aug 31 '15 at 15:07
  • I have a Valves layer on our web server in a .gdb. I also have a table that I downloaded from ESRI water solutions from the valve exercising template. I want to use that table, with a relationship to my valves layer so our inspectors can add information about the valve to that table, but without having to use the collector app. they would edit through a web app/web map. blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2015/02/18/… – dvdb Aug 31 '15 at 15:11
  • This is the template I downloaded from ESRI for the valves table: – dvdb Aug 31 '15 at 15:12

You are best to just follow the article Related Tables – Exploring New Ways to use Collector for ArcGIS

the key points are you will want to create a Relationship Class inside of and SDE that is registered to your server [enter image description here]

if they do not have an ArcGIS Online Account then you can build out an app using the WebAppBuilder that has the Editor enabled.

here is a working example:

  • did it end up working out? – MDHald Aug 31 '15 at 19:25
  • No, I was unsuccessful. We were not able to updated a feature service from our server using the ArcGIS Online web browser or creating a custom web app builder. We will use Collector. Unfortunately, now I cant show my inspected records using symbology from my related table. – dvdb Sep 17 '15 at 14:03
