I uploaded a PDF to my organization's content. Now I would like to add a link or some way to open this PDF from a Web App Builder webapp. Is there a way to do this?

I copied the link from the PDF shown in our ArcGIS Online account (hosted on arcgis btw, not Portal) and added that link to the app header in the 'Attribute' section of  Web App Builder editor, but the link was only active for a few minutes (now the link results in a 'Request has expired' message).

I guess I could copy the text into the 'About' widget window but I'd rather not do that...

Hey @JasonFitzsimmons,

 

Are the PDFs to be viewed as "standalone" or are they associated with features on the map for the web appBuilder app?

 

If the latter, you could configure the pop-up of the layer, to view the PDFs in the pop-ups.

Hello, it is stand alone, and ideally would be opened without the need to engage in the map at al (it is a basic how-to instruction guide, for using the web app )
