I have a Media Map configured with a URL parameter.

When I append &district=20 to the app URL the first time it loads it shows the typical map extent but if I refresh the page it loads the app zoomed into the feature I've specified with the URL parameter. Loading the app zoomed into the feature is the behavior I'd prefer. Is there a way to get that to happen on the first app load?

We don't have doc for this but the url params I mentioned in my post above can be used with instant apps and have the same format as those used by web apps in the Online document I linked to. For example here's the Basic instant app using the find url parameter

Thanks for the additional info. I'm working on debugging/testing this behavior out in the app today.

Is this only in AGO?  I recently upgraded to Enterprise 11.0 and all of my "apps/embed" based web maps being used by outside department webpages got hosed.  I am trying to identify a workaround using instant apps but can't figure out how to use URL parameters to zoom to a specific feature.
