When looking at an AGOL web map the pop ups include an "Edited by" line at the bottom.
This information just causes confusion for our end users, especially member of the general public.
Our layers are hosted in Portal and brought into AGOL as REST services (the "Add layer from web" option). Creating hosted feature layers for all of these services is not an option. If I wanted this information distributed in a pop up I would configure the pop up appropriately. I am aware this setting can be controlled with a hosted feature layer (per image below), but to ONLY be able to control this setting from a hosted feature layer is problematic. I am also aware that removing the fields entirely from the referenced dataset (or turning off Editor Tracking) is an option but is also problematic in an Enterprise system.
This problem has asked about since 2017 and the answer always ends up being, "Make it a hosted feature layer." I'm suggesting for everything else you only include information in the pop up the user specifies.
