I've created an ArcGIS map on my local ArcGIS map server using ArcMap desktop and I am able to open up the map from "View In: ArcGIS Online map viewer". When viewing the map, the url is something like:

www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?url=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A(...etc) --> simply the local url pointing to the map on my local rest service.

Can I modify this map using JS from here? How should I access this map and what is the map id in this case or do we even need it?

Also when I do "View In: ArcGIS JavaScript", it only shows the frame and the map doesn't come up


the short answer is no. the ArcGIS Online map Viewer is not an application that has been open sourced, and therefore is not customizable.

that being said, we've created a variety of templated JavaScript applications that CAN be configured, rehosted, customized and shared. they are available from the 'share' dialog in the map viewer (with code available on github)
