In ArcMap I am trying to add the following ArcGIS server


It connects fine but I don't see anything in the hosted folder enter image description here

If I use a link from the page above I can see the service in a web map https://staging.gcm.telstra.com.au/gisserver/rest/services/Hosted/Mobile_3G_ExtAntenna/VectorTileServer?f=jsapi

Is there any way to see this in ArcMap (10.8)

    I don't think ArcGIS Desktop supports vector tile services

  • ArcMap does not support MVT PBF vector tiles.

I just tried searching for "vector tiles" in the ArcMap 10.8 help and it found 0 results.

I then tried searching for "vector tiles" in the ArcGIS Pro 2.7 help and it found 87 results.

It appears that the functionality you seek, while found in the ArcGIS Desktop product, is only found in its ArcGIS Pro application, and not in its ArcMap application.
