Why can't I overwrite a web layer which has a view?

I attempted to overwrite a web layer in Portal for ArcGIS via ArcGIS Pro. The web layer I attempted to overwrite has a view. From within ArcGIS Pro, the overwrite appeared to be a success, but the result is not as expected.

Workflow:

Overwrite web layer (hosted feature service)

Result:

The hosted feature service contains no data, but the corresponding feature service view contains the updates.

Considerations:

1. The feature class used to overwrite the feature service was identical with respect to a very minor symbology change, a definition query, and more features.

2. I replicated this same workflow (same scenario) with a completely different feature service and found the same result.

Details:

ArcGIS Pro 2.3

Portal for ArcGIS 10.7 (unconfirmed)

This seems like a bug.

The problem was isolated to a definition query applied to the feature class in ArcGIS Pro. The definition query is valid and should not yield an empty feature service.

As a workaround, I removed the definition query and adjusted the view in Portal.
