Bug ENH-000097631


Web AppBuilder should display a popup notifying the user when one of the referenced layers becomes unreachable

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

1. Provide the appropriate/comparable step by step workflow to help illustrate the request.
Portal for ArcGIS web maps notify the user through a popup when referenced service layers become unreachable. The same type of messaging does not exist in Web AppBuilder.

2. What is the problem feature X is trying to solve? (i.e. What is the problem/limitation/design choice that is preventing the customer from moving forward?)
When a Web AppBuilder application is taking longer to load due to an unreachable service layer, users are not alerted; which affects the usability of the product.

3. What are the benefits or changes that would result from the enhancement? (i.e. How does making this change help the customer's workflow or business?)
Having a type of messaging to alert the user of unreachable services would improve the overall user experience of the product.
