Bug BUG-000111085


Portal for ArcGIS does not support publishing GeoJSON files encoded in UTF-8-BOM as hosted feature layers.

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

Convert the GeoJSON file to be encoded in UTF-8. Alternatively, run the GeoJSON file in <a href="http://mapshaper.org" target="_blank">mapshaper.org</a> and export to GeoJSON.

Both of these versions successfully publish in ArcGIS Online.
