Shortlist Feature Collection As Open Data

Question asked by sethlewistempe on Jun 1, 2017

Is there a method for exposing a Shortlist Builder feature collection layer as a hosted service that reflects the latest updates made to the original feature collection layer? 

 

Our organization has published multiple Shortlist Story Maps using the Shortlist Builder with the data existing until now only as Feature Collections in the web maps themselves. However, we've received multiple requests for sharing this information as Open Data. While we can save the feature collection as a layer and then publish said layer as a Hosted Service, based on my limited testing it would appear that any changes made to the original feature collection via the Shortlist builder are not propagated outward to any published REST services.

 

In other words, saving a feature collection layer from the Shortlist web map acts as a snapshot of that data and not a real-time feed.
