ITAS refer to temporary stay permit that allows foreigners to reside in Indonesia. One of the reasons why many foreigners get deported despite having ITAS is because they do not actually have work permit but are found to be working In Indonesia.

This type of visa may be granted for up to two years and do not require the USD 100/month government levy.

ITAP can only be applied after the foreigner has previously obtained a temporary stay permit.
