I wish to have some dynamic content in the configuration panel of a configurable web application.

In specific I would like to show the current categories of the Portal.

Is there any way in which this is possible?  I'm open to any suggestions.

i think a costum widget could do the trick: 

If you look at the:

and then with:


you would be able to get the categories 

and then use html to order the information with JS

Getting categories in a widget is not a problem. I would like to have it in the configuration panel when configuring a custom web application template.

For reference, this is what I mean as described here: https://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/create-maps/create-app-templates.htm#GUID-12539044-708B-4FB0...
