Automate batch update of layers using ArcGIS API for Python

Hi there,

Thank you for your assistance with this potentially basic question, I am new to Python. 

I would like to automate the following workflow, so am seeking confirmation if it is possible:

  1. Pull a shapefile download from an ArcGIS hosted feature service. 
  2. Clip the shapefile.
  3. Reupload to ArcGIS Online as a hosted feature service.
  4. Automate the repetition of this process so that layers remain current.

I believe this should be possible, maybe using a combination of ArcPy and ArcGIS API for Python. Has anyone tried this?

Thank you,
