I have created a web appbuilder app online and successfully downloaded the code to my own server. The app is shared within my organization. When I access the site on my server fresh from the downloaded code I get the login dialog box but after putting in my arcgis online username and password the app lauches fine.
However, I then attempted to set up the proxy with a client id and client secret as I read in this forum that that was the way to get rid of the login dialog box for my organizational users. I have the proxy set up and I have tested it and it is working. I have registered the app on arcgisonline using my own site's url and I checked the radio button marked "Public" when registing the app. But now, when I lauch the app on my own server, I get the initial blue loading screen and then the screen just goes white -- no more login dialog, just nothing.
Can anyone help me get this app off the ground? Or help me understand why it isn't working?Robert Scheitlin, GISP or other gurus needed!
I know the whole desire to use the appid and app secret but I have found it to be a real pain and you can easily use username and password in the proxy.config instead.
Thanks very much Robert,
I tried that instead but it didn't help -- I am starting to think the problems are caused by my organization's reverse proxy setup, although I have already tried to account for that and don't know what else to do.
My proxy.config has this:
Here are a couple of other pieces of the mystery:
These work fine:
This is the url that errors out in my app:
BUT -- this works fine (same as above string without the proxy):
In my proxy.config I have tried both of these:
In the reverse proxy config I have:
I don't know what else to try! Thanks for any ideas. I'm wondering if it is not possible to use Web AppBuilder with a reverse proxy.
I use a Apache reverse proxy on my site as well so I can tell you that it does work in the mix.
Here are a couple of things. In my proxy.config I have:
<serverUrl url="http://gis.calhouncounty.org" matchAll="true" /> <serverUrl url="http://<my org>.maps.arcgis.com" clientId="??????" clientSecret="??????" matchAll="true" />
And the URLs that my web map uses all use my fully qualified domain name that goes through my reverse proxy.
So some questions:
Thanks again. It seems that my proxy.config format matches yours.
Here’s what I’ve discovered so far:
The map/app on arcgis online is accessible to everyone (Public).
When I remove all the proxy directs from my config.json file, the app opens from my local server with no problem, and with no login dialog. As soon as I direct it to my proxy, it fails. But the proxy seems good when I try the tests I mentioned earlier.
If I leave the username and password in the entry for http://myorg.maps.arcgis.com in the proxy config file, then the error I get is a 500 error: “Failed to load resource: the server http://<my site> /proxy/proxy.ashx?http://myorg.maps.arcgis.com/sharing/rest/portals/self?f=json&doj... responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error).
If I remove the username and password in the entry for http://myorg.maps.arcgis.com in the proxy config file, then the error I get is a 403 error: “Failed to load resource: the server http://<my site> /proxy/proxy.ashx?http://myorg.maps.arcgis.com/sharing/rest/portals/self?f=json&doj... responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden).
Regarding your questions:
1. My map is shared with the public (Everyone).
2. My org doesn’t use Portal, just ArcGIS Online, and we do have a number of things that are shared publicly. So, I can’t find anything there that could be an issue.
3. I have one layer in the map coming from a publicly accessible ArcGIS server service that my org publishes. I can browse to the rest endpoint page fine through my own website proxy.
4. Using username and password (or client ID and client secret) the error is a 500 “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error).
I need you to re look at questions 2 and 4.
You are not understanding what mean in #2. Your Orgs AGOL account is called a Portal. Then there is on premise Portal which is what I think you thought I was speaking of. Anyway on AGOL there is a setting in your orgs settings that allows for anonymous access. I want to know if your org has that checked or not?
And #4 If you did exactly what I asked and the result was an internal error then something is wrong with your proxy as I can do this using my proxy and orgs account and I get a json result. If you get your proxy to start logging then the proxy log might shed some light on this.
I get your point regarding question 2 and I followed up on it. I checked the AGOL setting and yes, it allows for anonymous access.
As I mentioned above, I have tested my proxy using other urls such as
and it seems to work fine there.
Thanks for your suggestions, maybe I can get the proxy to log more information.
