Hi,

I'm using the find parameter of the WAB URL e.g. http://<your portal url>/apps/webappviewer/index.html?find=10237549

However, I have several geocoders configured.  Is there a way of instructing the find to only use a particular geocoder to stop it trying to search all available?

Thanks,

Steve

Stephen,

  There is no option to set the active source on the Search widget from the Url paramater right now. You may want to log an enhancement request for this.

Are you talking about the search widget?

If so,

You can load or remove any geocoder you want.

Hi,

I have several geocoders configured for the Search widget.  Users need these as they do a variety of searches from within the WAB application.  However, when opening the WAB application I'd like to make a call to just one of these geocoders to locate the map at a certain point for the user. The find parameter of the WAB application URL seems only to accept a value to search for and it will search all of the configured geocoders for this value.  This appears quite expensive in terms of performance and also there is a chance the value passed on the URL could be found in the wrong geocoder.

I'd like to be able to specify which geocoder to perform the find on.

Thanks,

Steve
