24082: Layer's symbol will be downgraded

Your layer uses a symbol that is not supported when publishing web feature layers. The symbol will be downgraded to a simple symbol that is supported.


  • Do nothing. The server downgrades the symbol to a symbol that is supported.
  • Change the layer's symbology.
  • Remove the layer if it is not needed.

More information

Web feature layers allow you to query features and also get the features' symbology. Clients can use this information to draw features with a symbology consistent with what is defined on the web feature layer.

The symbols returned by the web feature layer are based on the symbology of the layers in the map. Each symbol in each layer is referred to as a type. For example, a layer symbolized with a single symbol has one type. If a unique value renderer is used, a type for each unique value in the renderer is returned.

Web feature layers do not support a subset of ArcGIS Pro renderers. Renderers not supported include the following:

  • Unique value renderers based on multiple fields
  • Graduated colors with advanced settings (rotation, size, and symbol levels)
  • Graduated symbols within polygons
  • Multilayer symbols
  • Proportional symbols
  • Dot density
  • Charts
  • Scale-based symbology including symbol classes with visible scale ranges and scale-based sizing. For more information, see Author a multiscale map.


In addition to the renderers listed above, this analyzer will be triggered for multipatch features in a map. In this case, the multipatch will be downgraded to a footprint of the multipatch.
