Has anyone used the Python API to create Views of a hosted feature service on ArcGIS Online?
I have a hosted feature service (type = feature layer collection) and want to automate creation of Views. The arcgis.gis module has a method called create_service with an optional parameter to specify if the service is a View.
I've tested this on a dummy feature service. See the python below that results in an error ('Item' object has no attribute 'create_service').
from arcgis.gis import GIS
from arcgis.gis import ContentManager
mygis = GIS("https://www.arcgis.com", "username", "password")
GMitem = mygis.content.get('itemID')
GMitem.create_service(name = "GM_COPY_Reg1",is_view = TRUE)
