How to open webmaps only available by a group of users, not public

Discussion created by jsn on May 20, 2014
Hi all

I created several  ArcGIS Online Web Maps, with restricted access, only for the members of a group. 

We have a web site http://[organization].maps.arcgis.com/home/index.html   that uses adfs  (https://adfs.[organization].com/adfs/ls/IdpInitiatedSignOn.aspx) and allows to sign on with our network accounts.

I also downloaded the Basic Viewer Template in JavaScript code to customize it.  Now when I open the Basic Viewer locally  it does not open the web map but it shows a Sign In popup window .

Is there anyone that is using a local application to open a map on ArcGIS online that is not public but restricted to a group?
