Some Tips for Customizing Web Mapping Application

Hi all, 

I have a Web Mapping Application in Portal for ArcGIS Enterpise using a Tab Theme and some ESRI widgets (Chart, Basemap, ...) that I have to customize a little. I have seen in MyContent that I can download my Web App, and I have installed Web AppBuilder for Developers. 

I have a little experience with web development, and I had customized some widgets, but It's the first time that I have to customize a complete webApp. So,  I have some qüestions:

1. Where I have to copy the ZIP file that I have downloaded ? Maybe in a directory here ".\arcgis-web-appbuilder-2.13\WebAppBuilderForArcGIS\client\stemapp" ? 

2. Does the directory where I unzip the ZIP file have a specific name?

3. When I finish this Web App, how I have to install for the end-users? How can I share a web app link with end-users (like you can do from Portal or AGOL) ?

Thanks in advance for your help !

Please, anyone could explain me how to work locally with my WAB App  that I have dowload from Portal?

I have donwload my WebAppBuilder Webmap in a folder called 'samplewebmap', which has this content:


So, I have started node.js service in my WAB for developers.

And I have called this URL,  https://localhost:3344/webappviewer/?config=samplewebmap/config.json# but the webmap doesn't open. After a while I have to enter Portal credentials but none of the widgets appears in the Webmap that only shows the basemap and some sample data.

I am able to call http://localhost:3344/webappviewer/?config=sample-configs/config-demo.json# to work with custom widgets that I have modified (only widgets), But I am not able to work with WAB app ... 

What I am doing wrong ?
