Esri introduced vector basemaps to provide additional options for users. This set of vector basemaps is available through the Esri Vector Basemaps group in ArcGIS Online. Currently, the vector basemaps can be displayed in desktop web browsers.
However, in ArcGIS Web AppBuilder, Esri vector basemaps can only be enabled through organization settings.
Note: When creating a custom basemap in ArcGIS Web AppBuilder, it is not possible to use vector basemaps because only raster basemaps are supported.
The following instructions describe how to add Esri vector basemaps to the default basemap gallery in ArcGIS Web AppBuilder.
Note: The 'Use Esri vector basemaps in supported ArcGIS apps' check box is not displayed for organizations that are already using Esri vector basemaps. Refer to Portal for ArcGIS: Basemap gallery for more information.
