Hi all, 

I'm looking for a way to restrict the zoom level on an embedded map within a storymap.  I can set the visible range of individual layers, but I'd really like to restrict the zoom level on the whole map - is this possible?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello @HelenCooper , there is not a way to limit map zoom on a web map in StoryMaps. You could embed a web app in StoryMaps with a web map navigation boundary. Check out this tutorial and let me know if you have any questions: https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000024890 

Best,

Abby

Thanks @AbbyE_Esri, that would be a potential workaround.  Did I hear rumours that WebApp builder may be entering extended support at some point in the not-too-distant future though?  

Thanks again,

@HelenCooper Yes, there's still a bit of time until Web AppBuilder retires, but here's the roadmap for your reference: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/web-appbuilder/announcements/arcgis-web-appbuilder-roadmap... 

Let me know how this option works for you if you try it!

Thanks,

Abby

Thanks @AbbyE_Esri.  It's a good suggestion but the roadmap for webappbuilder is not good news for me (and many others I suspect).  I need the tools that I'm building to have greater longevity than that!

Slightly frustrating, as web appbuilder is a great tool, and Experience Builder just doesn't match its capabilities yet.

@HelenCooper , good point, this won't be a solution at its current state for more than a few years. Controlling the map zoom extent could be something you could add to the ArcGIS StoryMaps Ideas page as a suggestion for an enhancement to our product, if you'd be willing to write up a few words about it!

Have a good weekend,

Abby
