Error Message

Attempting to publish and share a web map to ArcGIS Online via ArcGIS Pro fails, returning the generic error:

Error:   
Staging Failed
Image of the error message

Cause

This issue can occur due to the following:

  • The map contains feature classes with XY Event layers.
  • Line features in shapefiles exported from CAD are published, but points are not published, as the failure occurs during the service definition creation process when attempting to publish to ArcGIS Online.
  • For versions prior to ArcGIS Pro 1.2, this error occurs if the Symbology pane contains null values. This is a known limitation.

Solution or Workaround

Depending on the cause, apply one of the following workarounds:

When using XY Event layers, export to a stand-alone feature class

A workaround is to export the feature classes containing the XY event layers to stand-alone feature classes, and remove the XY event layers from the map before publishing to ArcGIS Online.

Publish directly using ArcGIS Online

  1. Zip the shapefile using compression software.
  2. Log in to www.arcgis.com
  3. Navigate to My Content.
  4. Click Add Item > From my computer.
  5. Select the zipped shapefile, add a name and the necessary tags, and click Add Item.

When the Symbology pane contains null values

Remove the null values from the Symbology pane before publishing the map to ArcGIS Online. It is advisable to upgrade to the latest version of ArcGIS Pro, as this issue was resolved in version 1.2.
