Hi Everyone, I hope that I am just missing something simple here but there does not seem to be an easy/secure way to have certain users edit data in AGOL.
Here is the scenario.
- I have a public map with one feature service (that has three layers).
- This feature service was published from ArcMap straight to the cloud (not through a server).
- I want to be able to have users in my organization, in a certain group, to be able to edit this feature service on my public web map.
When I enable editing for the feature service, then it seems like anyone and everyone can edit the data (without even needing an ArcGIS Online login). I can’t seem to restrict it to just certain users.
From doing a fair amount of research on this and looking into different roles, it seems that the best solution is to have a user in the “Data Curator” role (the one with full edit rights) and have that user open up the feature service into a new map and edit the data that way. This site led me to that thought:
…and look at the bottom section of “Add layer to new map with full editing control”
My question is, is there not a way to have a named user in my organization edit my public web map without allowing the whole world to also edit my data? I hope this question is clear enough and that others have come across this issue… I want this to be simple for my non-GIS people in my organization and not have to have them go through many extra steps.
