Seasons Greetings for 2015!


Has there been any progress made in discussions between the Geoportal Server Team and the Web App Builder Team in adding the Geoportal Search Widget as a configurable app to Web App Builder?


It makes so much sense for these two ESRI Teams to work together and add an app developed by another ESRI Team to Web App Builder to provide functionality that does not currently exist to Web App Builder.  The Geoportal Search Widget allows for search and discovery of GIS resources like data, metadata, map services, etc.  Then when a map services is discovered it includes the capability to "Add-to-Map" for quick mash-up and display of map services.


There is some very useful programming behind the Geoportal Search Widget that could benefit the broader GIS Community, and take note the code behind this widget is pretty sophisticated and not easily reproduced or replicated.   For non-developers it would be most useful to add the Geoportal Server Search Widget as a configurable app to Web App Builder so it an be easily added to your viewer of choice, as downloading, developing, and hosting is not always an option for some users.


Does anyone from the ESRI Geoportal Team (Marten) or from the Web App Builder Team have an update to share from the November meeting where this issue was discussed?


Curious minds would like to know from Rainy Portland, OR!
