I have created WEB APP in  web app builder developer edition. Exported WEB APP and hosted from the server. Right now,  a web map consisting all the feature service is consumed from AGOL (ArcGIS Online) to the WEB APP. I would like to completely eliminate the Web map from AGOL and directly refer Rest services  to  the exported files. In short, I would like to find a way to implement feature services in the web map by customizing Web AppBuilder application, since I want to eliminate the ArcGIS Online access to my application.

Here is a simple example. Here rest services are directly superimpose onto the map without the Web map refereed from AGOL


Here is an another example:


How can I do that and where do I need to do the modifications in the exported files from web app builder developer edition.

That is not possible with WAB. There are many dependencies in WAB that use AGOL and the webmap (this is by design of esri).

Hi Prashant,

This is not a supported workflow. Web AppBuilder is designed to work with web maps from either ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.

Hope this helps,
