Map Viewer template and non-public Web maps?

Hi All,

Map Viewer template requires that Web maps are publicly shared.  Is there some way to tweak around this requirement? I have some data which can only be shared in ArcGIS Online group. Otherwise Map Viewer template would work as perfect starting point ...




Let me elaborate a bit my question above, since I think this is a quite common requirement if one is to use the template. Map Viewer template should be capable of prompting "named user" authentication and allow/deny access to app, which includes non-public Web map. This basically means a Web map shared in ArcGIS Online Group which is not shared to everyone.

Thank you for your question Ilkka. While I haven't done this myself yet, there has been some interest in using non-public web maps with AppStudio templates, which is nicely addressed by Marika Vertzonis here:

unable to see web maps under "My Content" when setting the web map in appstudio for an app

Hope this helps point you in the right direction.

Hello Everyone

We have a Basic corporate account and would like to deliver within our organization or registered users.

If we acquire the Standard license we could create private maps even on public templates?

As a business opportunity we think we could provide a simple solution to our customers as registered users on our organization account.
