WAB now 2.7 available (January 2018)
Make sure your machine name is not longer than 15 characters, if it is, the url will be truncated. Change your machine name and run thru process again.
With many of us having issues with getting the Web AppBuilder (WAB) developer’s edition set up correctly, here are a few tips and solutions I have found, both to help others, and for me to find again (!). Some tips are taken from other threads, which I will link to if I can find them again. I will also add some of my observations, assumptions, and understanding at the end of the doc…. comments are welcome, and I will update if necessary.
Various errors people have received are
This is not an all inclusive list, and I will try to update if other solutions are given. Steps:
Sample shows registering two different machines with http and https with <machinename>.<FullDomain>
Suggest to add HINT #5: If having issues and still getting the WAB redirect_uri error 400 error "Double check your computer name and pay close attention to spelling."
HINT #6 added 2/15/2017: Tip for "Error 400 Invalid redirect_url" : Make sure your machine name is not longer than 15 characters, if it is, the url will be truncated. Change your machine name and run thru process again. (from Can I use Web Appbuilder Dev Edition during a Free trial of ArcGis? )
then if all works, your default browser (I use Firefox) should open and WAB should fire up. If not…
If for some reason you don’t get the WAB set up correctly the first time, (maybe because you started and exited because you didn’t know what to put int for the AppID) and therefore it:
The easiest solution I have found is to (close the command window and the bad WAB in the browser, if applicable, then) delete the expanded “arcgis-web-appbuilder-1.0” folder (may work to rename?) and to re-extract the .zip. Then start with the Startup.bat again with your AppID ready (Step 4 above).
Observations and my initial understanding, resources, etc. (to be updated as needed)
Please try following :
That’s about for tonight. I hope this helps someone…. at least I should be able to find it again.
--Thanks for all the kind words of appreciation for this and my other rather messy WAB blogs. It's nice to know they are helping others, and that I still know where to find my notes! 8/27/15
