By design, a shapefile containing more than 1,000 features cannot be added to an ArcGIS Online web map. However, users can publish a hosted feature layer instead of adding the file to the web map. For more details, refer to the following ArcGIS Online help page: Publish features.
To change the default maximum records displayed once a service has been published, navigate to the service REST endpoint. Refer to the following article for more details: HowTo: Update the maximum record count for feature services in ArcGIS Online.
Increase the number of features in the Parameters option before publishing the map features to ArcGIS Online.
