  1. Open the Item Details page for the app item.
  2. Copy the item ID portion of the URL.
    In the following example, the ID is '42ea1b5cdefd4013ac13038927f237d6'.
  3. Open the ArcGIS Portal Directory sharing application and log in as a member with administrative privileges. The URL is in the format:
  4. Navigate to Home > OAuth2 > Register App.
  5. In the Register App form, enter:
    • Item ID: This is the ID copied in Step 2
    • App Type: Select either browser, native, server, or multiple from the dropdown
    • Redirect URIs: Enter using the format ["https://<server>:<port>"] or ["https://<server>:<port>","https://<server1>:<port>"]. These are valid addresses that users of the app can be redirected to after they successfully log in.
