Open Indoors

Once you've configured ArcGIS Indoors Web, you can access it from the item page in the portal. When opened, the website URL will have the following structure:

  • App: https://<yourportal.doamin.com>/portal/apps/indoors/index.html?appid=ec4d222d17eb4f4a9e1ab9300623f068#
  • Kiosk mode: https://<yourportal.doamin.com>/portal/apps/indoors/kiosk.html?appid=ec4d222d17eb4f4a9e1ab9300623f068#

When you open the app for the first time, it forces a log in to the portal specified in the ORG_URL value in the IndoorsConfig table. Once you log in, the default map automatically loads. If you're using a private device, it's recommended that you check the Keep me logged in check box on the portal to avoid having to log in every time you open the app.

Once kiosk mode has been logged in to the portal, it can't be logged out using the logout action link, because it's hidden in kiosk mode. To force kiosk mode to log in to the portal, click the refresh button in the web browser. In some cases, you may need to delete the web browser's cache and cookies. For more information about deleting cache and cookies, refer to your web browser’s documentation.

Note:

Kiosk mode is only supported in landscape orientation. A warning message appears if you try to use Indoors Web in kiosk mode in portrait orientation.
