Zone Lookup

The Zone Lookup template is based on the Zone Lookup web app template from Instant Apps. It provides a native app experience to find a zone or district for a specified location. The location can come from the device or using the user interface to search for an address or select a specific map point.


The requirements for using the Zone Lookup template are as follows:

  • Provide one or more Zone Lookup web apps. These can be a single valid item ID, the ID for a group that contains multiple Zone Lookup web apps, or a search query that contains multiple item IDs.
  • Zone Lookup web apps can be public or secured. To access a secured web app in your ArcGIS Online organization or  ArcGIS Enterprise portal using OAuth2, register your app and provide a client ID. For more information, see Sign your app. By default, only public Zone Lookup web apps appear in the Zone Lookup gallery. To access secured Zone Lookup web apps, click Settings > Licensing > Gallery and provide a client ID.

Customize your app

Once you create your app, you can customize it by changing the app settings.

Start AppStudio and in the side panel click Settings > Properties. The following table lists the contents of the tabs on the Zone Lookup Properties tab, sorted by the tab on which they appear, and their purposes. You can also modify the properties directly in the app's appinfo.json file. If you change any of these properties, click Apply to save them before starting your app again.
