Trying to publish a feature layer with a very basic symbology; no fill, just a basic hatch to match the outline color. Adding the layer to a new web map in AGOL keeps the outline color but changes the hatch color to black. I have other polygons that used the same symbology conventions and their hatch colors were all changed to black, too. Is there a way around this, so that the hatch color and outline color match, like they do in ArcMap before publishing? I've tried publishing to Portal and out of Pro with the same results.ArcMap symbol[![][1]]2

  • For polygon layers, a published feature service supports picture fill and simple fill symbols... are you seeing any warnings about the symbols being downgraded? You could publish this as a tile layer to preserve the symbology. – Russ Roberts May 3 '17 at 14:39

    No warnings at all. Published to AGOL and Portal and both changed the hatch color. – P. Sherman May 3 '17 at 16:18
  • looked into this, color hatching is not support in AGOL/Portal currently so the hatching fill will always be drawn as black. Here is a link to an ArcGIS Idea geonet.esri.com/ideas/8285 – Russ Roberts May 4 '17 at 17:31

    Okay, figured that was another function not supported in AGOL. It's pretty basic functionality and yet, we wait. – P. Sherman May 5 '17 at 17:50

ArcGIS Online uses the ESRI JS API 3.26 and can use the symbology that's available through the API. Here is a link to the different symbology you can use. You can change the renderer of the hosted feature layer by updating the definition. I haven't tried everything in the sandbox but so far everything works out. This doesn't solve the problem of limited symbology but it gives a bit more freedom.
