Anonymous users can download public apps in AppStudio Player, or use an app built with AppStudio that has been installed from an app store that doesn't require sign in. You can control who has access to your app by sharing it to your organization or a group.

The different user types and roles in ArcGIS organizations have access to different features of ArcGIS AppStudio. Refer to the following table for details, and for more information, see User types, roles, and privileges for ArcGIS Online or User types, roles, and privileges for ArcGIS Enterprise.
