I need to add an item list (fish species e.g.) to an ArcGIS Online feature layer. I have a Public account, am the owner of the layer and have tried to follow the documentation: https://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/manage-data/define-attribute-lists-and-ranges.htm However, the layers item page has no Data tab only the Overview and Settings tabs are available. As the owner I would have expected to see all tabs.

Is this a limitation on AGOL public accounts and, if so, is there another way to add the desired list?

Yes it appears that this is a limitation of the public account. The documentation you followed applies to Hosted Feature Layers.

The Prerequisites for publishing Hosted Feature Layers are documented in the publishing documentation. One of the prereqs is the publisher's account is part of an organization.

  • I did not test this by publishing from 2 different accounts to see the difference, maybe you can? Commented Dec 15, 2021 at 5:26
  • Thanks, I no longer have access to an organizational account so I may need to see if there is a subscription that meets my needs.
