Is there a workaround to the max number of WFS features imported in ArcGIS Online?

I have a WFS URL that I am adding as an item to ArcGIS Online. The WFS has well over 10,000 features. The default max number of features that ArcGIS Online will import is 3000 and the most I can enter is 9999.

If I change the visibility range to capture less than 3000 features at a time, it is still only importing the first 3000 records in the table for the entire dataset, not the given extent.

Is there a workaround to retrieve all features from a WFS? I also have a SQL Server Geodatabase instance that I could use to import this WFS to and publish through ArcGIS Server for consumption if needed. If this avoids the WFS max features obstacle.

I'm encountering a similar problem with ArcGIS Pro 2.4.2.  It seems to do the initial WFS request by pulling in the first 3000 features queried regardless of extent.  Changing the extent fails to trigger a request for additional features.
