I am wondering what are the options for updating a hosted feature layer in AGOL. For context, I will be hosting point layer with about 500 features that will be updated nightly from a scheduled task. The initial publishing of the layer does not need to be programmatic, but the nightly update does.


I have been looking into using the REST API update/delete/create endpoints for doing these nightly updates.


My question is, are there any other options for performing these updates outside the REST API? I see there is also a Python API and Native SDKs. Are those libraries using the REST API under the hood?
