The problem is as follows:
I have a WebMap with two Feature (Hosted) Layers: the layers have to be editable by members of AGOL that I choose, yet I want the webmap to be public, but of course not editable by everyone. The problem is that when I try to do so, the editability of either the layers or the webmap has to be changed so both have the same 'level' of editability. I found this post in Geonet https://community.esri.com/thread/84480 in which someone within Esri Inc suggests 5 workarounds, but I strongly believe there ought to be a better way to adjust the editability and viewing settings of Feature (Hosted) Layers and Webmaps, so both elements have their own settings that do not conflict.
Any better solution than the workarounds in the post?
Thank you in advance!
