I've created a Hosted Feature Service that needs to have public read-only access, but needs to be edited by a certain group. This HFS was previously left open to the public to edit, but that is obviously not a good idea. I've followed the technique from this article but now realize that this is for access through ArcGIS.com only,.. Hopefully not because I've create a WebApp to provide editing capability.
Question is can I use this technique to restrict editing of public layers, and yet edit the layer through my WebApp
....is the highlighted the only way to edit if I follow this suggestion?
....are there any other ways to provide public read-only access, yet still have the HFS editable?
