How do I set the maximum number of suggestions returned by ArcGIS suggestion service to more than the default 5? In the docs (docs) they say,

"maximum number allowed by the service".

So I believe, that this is a thing you could change.

I am using ArcGIS Server 10.3.1. Here is a sample from the docs with more than 5 suggestions link

The "maxSuggestions" parameter for the Geocode REST Service was added in 10.4.

Since you are using 10.3.1, there may not be a way to control it.

See parameter details here


You can do this in ArcGIS Online: go to the application hosting the services, select the search Widget. enter image description here

  • this is a workaround since you're using 10.3
