This is really confusing behavior and I don’t know what is the purpose of it, when I am connected to a published maps using the ArcGIS server as a USER I was surprised that after dragging a feature service to the TOC I can open its attribute table and export its data to my machine, connecting again but this time with Administrators credentials I was surprise d that the administrator cannot open the attribute table nor exporting the data!!!
Also why the both the administrator and the user cannot open the attribute table for a non-feature enabled maps !!
Another question why does the any user who has accessed to the ArcGIS server maps with user privileges can visually distinguish between the services with “feature access” enabled\ “non-feature access” form there icon but the admin cannot!! Because all icons for the published maps looks the same for all maps if you have accessed with Admin privileges!
