Problem: Unable to configure layer actions in ArcGIS Dashboards
When attempting to configure layer actions (flash, filter, and pan) for a map element in ArcGIS Dashboards, the message ‘No layers found for actions’ is returned, as displayed in the image below.
In a situation where layer actions are configured in the map element, clicking certain map features using the selection tool causes the tool to load indefinitely.
The web map in the dashboard contains map image layers. A dashboard’s web map can contain map image layers, but it is a known limitation that layer actions are not supported for map image layers.
Solution or Workaround
Instead of using map image layers, publish the data as feature services to configure layer actions for the elements in ArcGIS Dashboards. For steps, refer to ArcGIS Server: Feature service publishing options or ArcGIS Online: Publish hosted feature layers.
