If i build an app with web app builder tool, and host it in our server. Can i make anyone access the app without having an esri account username? If not possible, is the Java script api will help me to build an app open for public. 

Thanks,

Yaser,

The Web AppBuilder will be focused on an existing web map. If that web map is set to Public under sharing, then anyone with access to the internet should be able to see the map.

Thank you for your reply.

I used the WAB to build an app with the ArcGIS Portal. But, no one can access the app without portal username. So are you sure about your answer that anyone can access the app without any authentication. I used the portal to build my maps, and share it with everyone.

If all items in the story map and web map are public, then anyone can access it. If there is one item that needs a login, then only people with logins can access it.

Yea all items shared to everyone. But, I see that anyone without username can't access the portal page. Is there a way maybe to change the portal setting to allow anyone in network to have an access.

This all assumes that the org has the "Allow anonymous access to your organization's website" enabled though or are using the public url.

If your organization has disabled anonymous access, only members can access the organization's website. However, you can still share the organization's public items by sharing the item through the public URL (https://www.arcgis.com), instead of your organization's URL (for example, https://yourorg.maps.arcgis.com).

I set the GIS portal to allow anonymous access. but, it still ask anyone to enter user information (Windows Authentication).

That sounds like you have a secured service as part of your webmap then. To get past that you have to deploy and configure a proxy for your app.
