ArcGIS Experience Builder hosting on IIS-Security authentication using SAML-Azure AD

Hello everyone,


Greetings to all.

I am using ArcGIS Experience Builder Developer Edition 1.3 and developed single page application containing a few COTs widgets and a few custom ones. Application is ready for deployment on IIS & according to ESRI documentation all we need to do is to export the experience/application, extract it and host on IIS, and authentication in the ESRI documentation says, for securing the web-map, map widget and map-content one need to add Application ID in the “ClientID key of “attributes JSON in “config.json of the application.

Support URL: 


Following mentioned steps here is my observation:

  1. On accessing application hosted on IIS authentication wizard is prompted for webmap or map preview (map widget auth) but rest of the application loads without any kind of authentication.
  2. In case of Web AppBuilder, the application is map oriented hence the authentication works for complete app and not just map.

It would be really helpful if someone can suggest a method to implement authentication from SAML-Azure AD on Experience Builder application when hosting it on IIS web server.


Thank you!.
