Allow anonymous feature layer downloads

We have a federated ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 deployment. We are attempting to allow for anonymous download of publicly shared hosted feature layers, however, after following the only documentation I could find, we are still unable to allow anonymous access to the data. Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Hi @moremeowbell 

The first thing I would check is if anonymous access is disabled on your Portal:

Failing that, are anonymous users able to access the data but not download it? Inspecting the web traffic would be by next tip.

Hope this help

@Richard_Purkis Anonymous access is enabled and anonymous users are able to access the dataset, but they are only able to view the data in Portal by adding it to a web map. Any other ideas about what may be going on?

We are currently experiencing the same issue in Enterprise 10.9.1. 

  • Anonymous Access is enabled
  • All the file types were precreated and added to the Content Library
  • When viewing through the search bar, all the file types show and may be downloaded.
  • When viewing through the Category Card (set by group), the map loads when an item is selected, the download button is visible, but get the "Some formats may not be available" instead of the list of file types that you see when signed in. 

Uploading all of our data to ArcGIS Online is not an option due to Credits.

We ran into this limitation and ended up having to create an open data hub site in our ArcGIS Online Org. This required uploading the data to AGO instead of our Enterprise.
