How to export and download a WAB template for hosting in Portal?

i made a very simple Web app in my Organization AGOL account following instructions exactly as per Export as template—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Beta) | ArcGIS . According to Download app—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Beta) | ArcGIS "The app created by Web AppBuilder can be downloaded and hosted on your web server." Again, following the instruction exactly, I get to "

  1. On the item detail page, scroll down to the Properties, and Code Attachment. Click the Download. A ZIP file named webappviewer will be downloaded to your computer"

There is NO CODE attachment. What am I missing here? Are the ESRI instructions wrong? Missing step? Is it possible to create a template in WAB for AGOL and download it for use in an instance of Portal which is behind a firewall?

Hi Tom,

as far as I know, if you create web app through WAB in AGOL is not able to download. WAB have 2 types:

1. integrated in AGOL/portal that you have used

2. stand alone (WAB for Developer)

if you want to get the code, you have to use WAB for Developer instead of WAB on AGOL.

Not sure if you're still looking for help Tom, but the Download App instructions are referring to this:

Download that and then copy the json from<itemid>/data?f=pjson

into the config.json file of the app folder you just downloaded.  'itemid' being the ID of the original app you created in AGOL.

I know it's confusing, the Download app—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Beta) | ArcGIS  instructions are not comprehensive, well composed or even accurate in some of the steps listed.
