Home page

The ArcGIS Web AppBuilder (developer edition) home page is the place to manage your apps and templates. It not only displays information about each app and template you create, it also houses the tools to manage them. When you log in to the portal, you'll see your apps listed on the home page by default. To see your templates on the home page, click the Templates tab.


If you log in as an administrator, you can view and manage apps and templates created by anyone. Non-administrators can only view and manage their own apps and templates.

Apps and templates can be categorized in All, 2D, and 3D and sorted by title or most recently created. They are searchable and can display in grid view or list view.
