I am wondering if I can change the projection of a feature service hosted on AGOL without republishing the data?

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for the post - this is not possible at this time. The explanation from this post Update coordinate system of hosted feature layer? is:

You cannot directly change the coordinate system in online feature service once published.

As you indicated, one way to achieve this is to export the data in online to filegdb (with attachments), then open this data in ArcMap or Pro, change the coordinate system and then overwrite the data in online.

Hope that helps,
