Available with the ArcGIS Indoors Maps extension.
Viewer is available as a configurable app template in your ArcGIS organization with an ArcGIS Indoors Maps or an Indoors organization extension.
Once you create a web app from the Indoors configurable web app template, you can configure the resulting Viewer app. You can configure a 2D Indoors web map, an optional 3D Indoors web scene, route service, closest facility service, app launch actions, scale bar, print layout template, indoor positioning, hotel booking, kiosk automatic reset, a virtual keyboard for kiosk mode, logo, and theme.
Some options, such as routing and printing, may not be available if there is no access to the supporting services.

Possible options: Map Only | Letter | A4
When the value is Map Only, the printed map doesn’t contain page layout features (such as print date, map scale, and scale bar).
Only portrait orientation is supported for the A4 and Letter print layouts. A4 corresponds to the A4 Portrait layout and Letter corresponds to the Letter ANSI A Portrait layout.
