Hello 

I have a public ArcGIS Hub

ArcGIS Hub 

I have a hosted feature service on ArcGIS Online

http://spt-eaglegis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=ec7899ee5f5b4c7394753476c08b08d1#overview 

And the ability to export is disabled

When I open up in Open Data

ArcGIS Hub 

The option to download is present. - is this thie right setting to disable downloads?

I have been testing with other sites and have seen conflicting results

Hi John and Sarah,


There is no way to do this directly and we do not have plans to add such an option at this time. As a workaround you could include the layer in a web map and share the web map on your site. That would allow display but not downloads.

Is it shared or in a group that is shared with OpenData/HUB?  Have you tried unsharing it?  This will also make it undiscoverable by OpenData/Hub from what I understand, but still should be available thru AGOL. 

(If you still want it to show in OpenData/HUB, then I don't know.)

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for your response

Yes data is shared to a group with Open Data/Hub

If I unshare it from that group it will disapear from Open Data/Hub.

I want it to remain in Open Data/Hub but I want my users to see it but not export it.

*Edit - added Hub to get the right terminology.

I have the same question.  Is there anyway to enable the data viewable on the map in HUB, but not downloadable.

Thanks!

Hi Daniel,

It is a pity that this is not even in the plan. It would be very useful for hub owners to have more flexibility on the sharing options.

Best regards

Joan

Hi Joan,

Can you say more about your use case? We support private data to limit downloads to authenticated users in your org as well as maps for displaying rather than sharing data. Is there a need we've missed?

Thanks,

Patrick

Yes, I would like some authenticated users to view maps only, not download them. I need the maps locked down.
