4.17 Empty Popup clicking anywhere on the map

See original GitHub issue

Expected behavior

Encountered a bug in one of our projects when upgrading to ArcGis JS API v4.17. Anywhere we click on the map, we are getting an empty popup.

Actual behavior

When no features exist, I wouldn’t expect a popup to show at all.

Steps to reproduce the behavior

I spun up a barebones project that only contained the base map initialization logic. We are running the latest version of Angular (v11) esri-loader v2.16.0

The map initialization logic looks like this:

async initializeMap() {

    const [EsriMap, EsriSceneView] = await loadModules(['esri/Map', 'esri/views/SceneView']); = new EsriMap({
      basemap: 'hybrid',
      ground: 'world-elevation'

    const viewProperties: esri.SceneViewProperties = {
      container: this.mapEl.nativeElement,

    this.sceneView = new EsriSceneView(viewProperties);
    return this.sceneView;

Thank you for setting that up for us. I can verify the issue you originally described. It also doesn’t seem to appear in the previous version JSAPI 4.16.

cc @andygup have you seen anything familiar or similar to this before?
