Configuring security through Integrated Windows Authentication
You can secure access to the Event Editor web app using Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA). When you use IWA, logins are managed through Microsoft Active Directory. Users do not sign in and out of Event Editor; instead, when they start the app in a browser, they are signed in using the same accounts they used to sign in to Windows.
To use Event Editor with Integrated Windows Authentication, an ArcGIS Web Adaptor should be deployed for both the portal and ArcGIS Server on the same web server machine.

- Open your Event Editor config.json file and browse to Security. Ensure type is set to none.
- Remove the port number from all REST URLs used in your Event Editor configuration.
All REST URLs used in your Event Editor configuration must use the same server hosting the ArcGIS Web Adaptor (IIS).
Configuring security through OAuth 2.0 using an ArcGIS organization
You can secure access to Event Editor using an OAuth 2.0 based authentication mechanism. To enable OAuth 2.0 based authentication, you must first register the Event Editor web app with your ArcGIS organizational account.
If you want to use a secured map service, you must register the Event Editor web app with your ArcGIS organization. This federates your ArcGIS Server site with your ArcGIS organization to support single sign in.
- Sign in to your ArcGIS organizational account to add and register the Event Editor web app.
- Open your Event Editor configuration file.
- Specify the portalAppId.
Start the Event Editor web app in a web browser. Use your ArcGIS organization credentials to sign in. Once the supplied credentials are verified, you will be directed to a secure Event Editor environment.
