20027: Layer uses advanced renderer settings

Your layer uses advanced renderer settings that are not supported when sharing web feature layers. These settings are ignored by the web feature layer. Advanced settings include symbol rotation, symbol size, symbol-level drawing, and symbol transparency.


  • Do nothing. The web feature layer ignores the advanced settings.
  • Alternatively, 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 the features with a symbology that is 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 simple renderer (one symbol) has one type. If a unique value renderer is used, there will be a type returned for each unique value in the renderer.

Web feature layers support a subset of ArcGIS Pro renderers. These include:

  • Single symbol
  • Unique value (single field only, no groups)
  • Class breaks
    • Graduated colors
    • Graduated symbols

      The symbol may not be supported, in which case you can still share the web feature layer. If the symbol is not supported, the server downgrades the symbol to a simple symbol that is supported.

Renderers not supported include:

  • Unique value renderers based on multiple fields
  • Graduated colors with advanced settings (rotation, size, and symbol levels)
  • Graduated symbols within polygons
  • Proportional symbols
  • Dot density
  • Charts

Advanced settings are not supported, regardless of renderer. Advanced settings include:

  • Rotation
  • Size
  • Symbol levels
  • Transparency (feature transparency)
