I am building a non-public Story Map using the Tour template (in Portal). The options for adding content are publicly-available content (Facebook, Flickr, Picasa) or using a URL, which I can do, but then the user would have to login separately for the images. That won't work for us. Is there a way to upload images to Portal for use in a Story Map? Any other ideas for accomplishing this?

The Map Tour builder don't yet offer the ability to create the Feature Services in Portal for ArcGIS but if you can create the Feature Services yourself, Map Tour will be able to use it.

We don't have documentation for this as this depends a lot on Portal configuration, but the basics steps are

- Publish one of our sample csv to a Feature Service with attachments enabled map-tour-storytelling-template-js/samples/csv_file__lat_long at master · Esri/map-tour-storytelling-...

- Add the service to a webmap

- Publish a Map Tour from that webmap

- The Map Tour builder should open and let you upload pictures

Enabling attachments is a critical step can be done in different way depending how your ArcGIS Server is federated with your Portal.

In Map Tour, the images that you can add from Facebook, Flickr and Picasa require to be available without authentication. We are filtering out images so would require user to authenticate so you are effectively creating a story that don't require extra authentication for your users.

Unlike Picasa and Flickr, you will need to login to access your Facebook pictures but that's just a Facebook restriction. All the image that pick will be available without authentication.

In ArcGIS Online you can store picture in Feature Services but that capabilities is not enabled for Portal for ArcGIS yet.

Would it be possible to upload a custom template that contains the images into Portal?
