My Portal has a user intended to provide read-only access to existing map service so its user type is "Viewer". I would like my JS API application to use that. The JS API documentation says I should register an application for that purpose.

How do I register an application in a "Viewer" user type? Is it possible to register the application as myself (an admin) and then move the item to the "Viewer" account? I don't want the JS API application to get my admin powers.

Zian Choy‌, you can create the application under your account and keep it within your content.  Depending on how you share the application, your user (with the Viewer user type assigned) can still view it and do what they need to do.
