Extend operation views

Extend the built-in functionality of the app using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. You can develop your own widgets, map tools, and feature actions and include them in the operation view. For example, when you're building an operation view for a city's winter snow removal operations center, you may have a custom widget that displays the weather observations from various locations in the municipality. You can use the weather widget to monitor the storm conditions, allowing the coordinator to order snow removal vehicles to use equipment that's effective for the current air temperature and snow accumulation.

The following table shows the supported APIs for developing extensions for Operations Dashboard:

APIArcGIS OnlinePortal for ArcGISNotes

ArcGIS API for JavaScript


Supported in Portal for ArcGIS 10.4 and later

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF



Only supported in the Windows app, not the browser.

Support will be phased out with a later release of Operations Dashboard. Existing WPF add-ins and new development of extensions should use the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.
