How to re-use the URL of a deleted Story Map

Question asked by sbeste on May 1, 2017

I had a Story Map at a particular Esri URL that was automatically assigned, say

    https:// <my account>.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=01878934bbab4430a8409389e9244cc0. Fine

I foolishly deleted the Story Map on the ArcGIS Online My Contents page. Dumb!

Not finding any way to restore the deleted Story Map, I re-created it. Fine. The new Story Map, of course, has its own new URL:

    https:// <my account>.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=90abfd6d1ff741c09ec446a559362b34. Fine.

The problem is that I have lots of folks who have links or bookmarks to the deleted Story Map's URL. Those links no longer work. They certainly don't go to my replacement Story Map.

1 --> Is there any way to recover the deleted Story Map?

2 --> If not, how can I move my new Story Map to the old URL at Esri so that my users' links will still work?

 

Thanks,

Steve
