1. I created a file gdb and imported both the table and shapefile.
  2. Added them to the ArcMap table of contents and created a relate.
  3. Published as a service & ensured all was correct in the dialog box.
  4. I've added the layer to a basemap in ArcGIS Online.

Both the feature layer & related table show up in the contents however as shown in the picture below the option to "show related tables" is not available which is what I need.

    I believe you have to create a relationship class in a geodatabase, not a relate inside the ArcMap map document Jan 26, 2016 at 10:06
  • Also check the feature service to see if there is any relationship info in each of the layers. Jan 26, 2016 at 13:02
  • There is a Query Related Records Application you can download and customize to display the information. As @AlexTereshenkov mentions - you will need to build the relationship class inside the gdb first and not in the application.
