Hello everyone,

Hope this message finds you well.

I just would like to ask about the option of sharing publicly of my instant app. This is the first time I use the instant app and when I finished my app I chose this option: sharing level: public.

My question is about people outside my organization if they want to use it, should they have an ArcGIS Online account to access my ArcGIS Instant App or they can access it directly without any registration or having Esri account? Because I want people to use this app without restrictions such as they should have an account to allow them to use my app. 

Thank you.

Nada

Thanks for adding the screen capture, it really helped me figure this out for you, I can see that you are trying to use the Sidebar Instant App.

The link that you sent me is the link that you see when you are configuring the Instant App. You likely captured it from the URL you saw in your browser while you were working with configuring the Instant App.  I won't be able to open that link and that is not the link you want to use.

The link you need to use is the one generated via the Copy Link option or the link you see after you click Launch. Both Copy Link and Launch will return links that you can share with others that will allow public access to your app.

For your app, all of the following will work for public access (I used them myself to prove your app is public). Congratulations on having a publicly accessible Instant App!

https://nk21.maps.arcgis.com/apps/instant/sidebar/index.html?appid=afa5bbc89ec94f3098e73f47df3dff4d

The other one that will work is the generic ArcGIS.com URL:

https://www.arcgis.com/apps/instant/sidebar/index.html?appid=afa5bbc89ec94f3098e73f47df3dff4d

Both of these work perfectly, and I was able to see your app, the intro panel, and advance beyond the intro. Here's the proof:

Hopefully this will make sense and get you started along your Instant Apps way. You can prove this works by using the Copy Link or Launch URL in an incognito window.

When you author a map and share it publicly, you are prompted to also share any layers in the map publicly. If using Living Atlas subscription content, you will be notified.

When creating an app using ArcGIS Instant Apps and sharing the app publicly, a similar thing will happen. You will be prompted to ok updating sharing for any maps or layers that are not shared publicly. Living Atlas subscription content will automatically be proxied (meaning it won't cause a public viewer to be prompted to authenticate) and if you are using Living Atlas premium subscription content (that is subscriber content that consumes credits) you will be prompted to ok its use.

Bottom line, when sharing Instant Apps publicly, everything should be handled. You can always check by using an incognito window and/or by using the generic URL instead of your organization URL.

For example, this link to a public Instant App uses my organization URL:

https://onlinelabs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/instant/media/index.html?appid=5d35fea278724eb6ba0afaa947082...

This link uses the generic ArcGIS URL to to the same app:

https://www.arcgis.com/apps/instant/media/index.html?appid=5d35fea278724eb6ba0afaa9470820cf

Hello Dern, 

Thank you very much for your reply. I can see your point. However, what should I do now? to make it like the links you sent.

This is my ArcGIS Instant App link:

https://nk21.maps.arcgis.com/apps/configure-template/index.html?appid=afa5bbc89ec94f3098e73f47df3dff...

Please, could you tell me what should I do in addition to choosing this option:
