updating the content of a hosted scene layer

Hi, I'm trying to figure out the best way to share multipatch buildings in a 3D scene in AGO.


so far, we've shared our buildings in a scene layer package, which we've published as a hosted scene layer in AGO. it's easy to share static data in this way, but we have a multipatch layer that changes frequently (new buildings are added often).


How do we update the data in a scene layer? Is there another way besides creating a new scene layer package, uploading it to AGO, and then sharing it as a new hosted scene layer?


Do hosted services always have to be based on data that is uploaded to AGO, or can they connect to databases, like services on an arc GIS server?
