In addition to picking up new features, including Analysis widget for both built-in and custom geoprocessing tools, ability to editing related records, and pop-up actions, from the October release of ArcGIS Experience Builder in ArcGIS Online, version 1.13 allows an administrator account to view and edit all applications within the organization, adds commonly used setting components in Storybook, and includes all related file types in the web.config to simplify the offline deployment. Let’s dive into these updates.
Administrator account access privilege
Unlike Experience Builder in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise, only the app owners, prior to this release, could view and edit apps they created in the developer edition. This was challenging when a group of people collaborated on a project-based application using the developer edition. Starting this release, if you have an administrator account, you can view and edit all applications created by others within the organization.
Some setting components, such as SettingRow, SettingSection, and MultipleJimuMapConfig, are commonly used in the out-of-the-box widget settings. They are now available in Storybook so you can play and use them in your widgets more easily.
There are two new topics. The Importing existing apps and templates topic promotes collaboration. It talks about how you can import existing apps or templates from your ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise account, or from a downloaded experience shared by others. The Save, preview, and publish topic describes Draft, Published, and Unpublished changes statuses when you work on apps in the builder environment. Some of you may notice there are two config files in the apps folder under the server directory, storing app configurations for the draft and published statuses separately.
There are some breaking changes in Data action, jimu-ui, and unit test that may affect your apps. Make sure to check these changes out before upgrading your apps.
