About Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS

Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS is an intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) application that allows Portal for ArcGIS members to build applications without writing code. It also includes powerful tools to configure fully-featured HTML web applications that can be viewed and used right away.

As an administrator of your organization, there is nothing for you to install or configure; Web AppBuilder is embedded directly within your portal. Members of the organization can immediately access Web AppBuilder after saving a web map. To learn more, see Welcome to Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS.
