Map Will Not Zoom to Layer as Expected

Created on


I have configured my map to zoom to a specific layer, but the map is not zooming as expected. I have confirmed that the 'Zoom to Layer' checkbox in the Layers tab of the Report Map tool is checked only for the layer in question.


The most common cause for this is that [All Spatial Objs], which is the default, is selected in the 'Spatial Field' section of the 'Data' tab in the Report Map Tool (see image below) and multiple spatial fields exist in that particular table. The solution is to select the specific spatial field that you want to zoom into. The reason is if your table has multiple spatial object fields, Alteryx will not know which one to zoom to, and will automatically zoom to the largest object.
