AGOL Web map, how to filter out features using anouther features class polygon

I am creating a simple web map to visualise some county wide data using available datasets via The Living Atlas. These datasets cover the whole of the UK and I only want to visualise them for a specific county.
I have a polygon for the specific county and was hoping that there was a simple way to filter out the data I'm not interested in using that but I can't seem to see a way.

The only thing I can see to do is it filter out data using an attribute from the Living Atlas layer, this is clunky and I feel I must be missing a better way of acheiving the output I'm after. 

Any help would be appreciated.

@AndrewHankinson - I am not aware of any way to set spatial filters on the Webmap. Its something that I think would be quite helpful. I have seen this floating around the ideas section but I don't believe that there is any progress.

While none of these may be ideal - there may be a workaround for you.

If you can create a view of the layer (not sure if you will if you are working with Living Atlas). In the creation wizard, you can define an "Area of Interest". 



Another way you might be able to get past this by using the geoprocessing tools in the Webmap.

Hi @GIS 

Thanks for replying.

You are correct, I don't think that you can create a view layer using a layer from the Living Atlas. In the end I've just used ArcGIS Pro to create a new layer for my AOI. I was hoping to avoid doing this and just use some sort of styling or masking in AGOL. I think that you are right it would be useful to be able to do this.
