Anyone know how can I get my Portal for ArcGIS URL (ex. <name>.maps.arcgis.com)...

I need this URL to setup my Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (using Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS Developer Edition and node.js)

I must be missing something... you go there... Portal for ArcGIS and copy the url in your browser

"https://community.esri.com/community/gis/web-gis/portal-for-arcgis" I put it in quotes if that helps

Rifki/Jin,

the url is the AGOL or portal is the site used to setup to get the AppID.

This ID is then used to run the dev editoon.  Check out the instructions I have in

Tips and Observations for getting Web AppBuilder -  Developer Edition Installed

anothe he great resource for understanding how to install and use widgets us Installing Robert’s Enhanced Search Widget for the Web AppBuilder

and then check out the Web AppBuilder Developer Edition - Customization Resource List ​ for a list of resources for the dev environment.

Oh, it's mean that web App Builder is not free for use (because I have to buy license of Portal for ArcGIS and make AGOL account)...

Hmmm, can you tell me how to build Web GIS for free with ArcGIS (I just have ArcGIS desktop). Any plugin or other that can be used?

thanks.

Nothing is completely free. Do you belong to an organization like a university etc?  Perhaps open source

You can get a free AGOL account for development...of course it is limit

Sign Up | ArcGIS for Developers

The free plan includes 50 credits per month so you can immediately start building powerful applications:

You need an AGOL  or  a Portal site,  not both.

as Dan mentioned, the university may have something set up already, but if not, get a developer account so you can play and learn for yourself.

As rightly mentioned by Rebecca Strauch, GISP​, you could start with the ArcGIS Online trial license (Do not create a public account).

Also check how the credits are consumed Credits | ArcGIS for Developers .
