Why can't a User edit their polygon in a hosted feature layer?

We have a hosted polygon feature layer on our internal portal site, shared to the organization and to a specific group. The edit settings allow for tracked editing and disconnected editing. Editors should be able to see all features, and add, update, or delete their own features. 

The problem is that no one below Administrator user level can actually update a polygon -- that is -- they can neither reshape nor cut a polygon. According to the Member Roles page in portal, folks with a "User Role" should be able to "edit features in editable layers that are not public, based on the edit options enabled on the layer".  But we're finding that Users can only create polygons, delete polygons, and edit attributes using an online web map application and the Edit Widget. Administrators can reshape and cut polygons using the same tools.

We're at a loss here. Are we doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

Hi Eduardo,

We talked to an ESRI representative, and they were able to reproduce the error. It's possible that it's a bug with their 10.7.1 environment. I'm not sure if it's been submitted as a bug yet.

Is this a capability that you used in a previous version of ArcGIS or did you just try performing this task at 10.7.1?

Hi Eduardo,

Yes, actually, we just fixed it on Wednesday, with the help of an ESRI technician. Its seems as though the ArcGIS Online geometry utility service was only shared with the gis admin account on portal. Our ESRI technician logged into portal as the admin user, shared the geometry utility to the entire organization, and that allowed everyone to use the split and merge. 

Best,

Jes
