Our company is experience an issue with ArcGIS Online hosted feature layers that have SYNC Enabled. Anyone else experiencing this issue? As part of our currently workflow, we update numerous SYNC enabled hosted feature layers for numerous clients many times a day. Unfortunately, the size of these layers are ballooning from our DELETE and ADD Service end point updates. We've learned that it likely not the size of the hosted feature layer itself but the transactions being managed by some type of delta table(s) and that size is being tacked onto the hosted feature layer size. This explosion in hosted feature layer size is directly tied to credit consumption and that to cost so we need to figure out how to fix this issue. Any help would be appreciated.
One side note, if sync is disabled on the feature layer the size will reflect the correct size of the layer instead of the inflated size. Unfortunately our customers need to take these updated hosted feature layers offline for use in Collector for ArcGIS so disabling SYNC would break their workflows.
Please advise. Thanks
