Restrict user access to ArcGIS Online feature service by extent

Hi

 

Is it possible to limit access to an ArcGIS Online feature service for a given user or group using a specified extent?

 

For example, if we have a feature service with worldwide coverage, can we restrict a specific user or group to only be able to access features within their region (eg. UK). It would be very useful to be able to specify for that user/group the rectangular extent (or even better a polygon geometry) of features that they are able to access.

 

The feature service will be used in ArcMap, so doing this client-side would not really be an option. The only way I can currently think of doing this is by using a proxy and having the proxy check the user/group and then apply a geometry filter to the feature layer queries.

 

I'd appreciate any thoughts on this.

 

Regards

 

John
