Additional Information

This is by design. For example, if users change symbology and save the web map, the change is saved even if the service changes. This is the correct behavior, the saved symbology overwrites in this specific webmap.


If users change the symbology and save the web map. The web map always keeps the saved symbology even if the service changes. Users need to modify the webmap symbology settings, or make a new webmap.
