Configure your site

The first step to launching a new site is the Site Configuration tab where you specify a name, provide a description, and create the URL for your site.


The site remains private until you share your site.

  1. Browse to the admin application.
  2. On the Sites tab, choose Create New Site.

    The Site Builder opens to the Site Configuration tab where you can set up basic information including the site name, description, and URL.

  3. Provide a name for the site. The name appears in the browser tab. There is a maximum 70 character limit.
  4. Optionally, provide a browser icon.
  5. Provide a site URL. The name you provide appears at the end of your organization's standard site URL, for example, https://webadaptorhost/webadaptorname/apps/sites/#/mysitename. There is a maximum 64 character limit. By default, the site will be named 'data'.
  6. Set a fixed map extent.
  7. Click Save.
