ALL,

We are early adopters of AGOL and have 100's of Web Maps and Services hosted on AGOL.

So we have some experience / methods for navigating "enhancement" pushes to the system.

Unfortunately, we can't figure out an issue with Mixed Content in Story Maps within AGOL.

The issue is when a Story Map has mixed content, portions of the Story don't load or prevent the App from loading at all.

My understanding of mixed content is having sources to http & https within the same App.

We're aware of the settings in AGOL under security that reuire SSL.

We don't require SSL.

Should all content in a Story Map be http or https?

Because having both does not work.

For us this means searching through 100+ maps to ensure they all work or are free of mixed content.

We're searching for a path forward.

Thank you

The short answer to the content question is that you should stick with one protocol or the other, but do not mix the content.  Ideally this would be HTTPS.

Here is some documentation for you to consider:

Maybe geo job Admin Tools for AGOL can assist you in this process.

Admin Tools New - Geo Jobe

Just a suggestion as I'm not sure whether your specific problem is covered by their tools, but it might be worth investigating.

Additionally, if you decide to stick with one protocol you can use the ArcGIS Online Assitant: ArcGIS Online Assistant to update your urls.

This only lets you change the URL of the overall story/application. It does NOT let you manage individual links within an application.
