Clip or Mask Data in Enterprise

I am looking for a way to clip/mask referenced feature layers for a specific area. 

I have referenced (SQL) data layers for an entire town that I want to clip to just a sporting precinct. I would then like to display the data in a dashboard with counts and summaries of just the clipped area.  

I know I could set up a model in Pro to clip the data and share it to Portal, however I am looking for a way to do this in Portal so the data is live and not a copy that needs to be updated. 

Any ideas, greatly appreciated

I'll just throw in an idea but I don't know how to implement it exactly.

I would guess it's possible to add a View captured from the RDBMS (SQL) table based upon geometry extent or if the feature geometry intersects a certain envelope? Then you could publish that view?

Hi Rebekah Polette‌,

Starting ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8 release, we support end clients to define clipping and spatial filter polygons in a map service export/identify/find operation. Please see the link below and see whether you will find it useful in your case.
