I was looking for a quick solution to access public data through ArcGIS Online while connected to a local portal site. Right now i use portal but when i want to search for public data it only sees local organizational data. I like to pull in basemap data and environmental data all the time. My current solution is to close arcmap, open arcgis administrator, and reconnect to arcgis online. I am essentially closing everything and toggling between local portal and AGO. I was hoping for a simple solution to keep all my information in portal secure and still have the flexibility to access the publicly available data in AGO. I would assume this could be done through "Allow Portal Access" or "Collaborations". I can't imagine this not really being an option.
