I have a custom web app hosted on my own web server, not hosted on ArcGIS Online. It does, however, load an ArcGIS Online-hosted basemap and several ArcGIS Online-hosted layers upon visiting the URL.
Is there any way I can load the map already zoomed to a specific feature within the map by passing URL parameters to affect the extent?
I have seen this functionality for apps developed and hosted by ArcGIS Online but have not found any info about custom externally-hosted apps.
let's say the URL to my app is 'myapp.com' and I have a feature in my app called 'Building A'. Is there some text string I can add to the URL to load the map already zoomed to Building A?
e.g. 'myapp.com/search=Building A' or something similar?
I have looked through these threads for info already:
