On the evening of March 31 (PDT), we plan to update ArcGIS Online.
New Tools Coming in Beta
- ArcGIS Notebooks, Esri's integrated Jupyter notebook experience, will be available in beta with ArcGIS Online 8.1. ArcGIS Notebooks will allow you to combine the ArcGIS Python libraries with the larger open-source Python ecosystem for spatial data management, spatial analysis, and data science.
HTTP Layer Notifications
ArcGIS Online is preparing to enforce HTTPS-only communication starting September 15, 2020. At the March release, organizations who have chosen not to utilize HTTPS for their web services will receive a notification informing them that adding layers and content via an HTTP URL will not work after September 2020. For more information, read the blog.
ArcGIS Online is launching the capability to choose the region where your geospatial data is stored. With the March update of ArcGIS Online, customers will be able to select their data hosting region (United States or Europe) at the time of purchase. Subscriber and subscription information, item metadata, LBS services and processing (analytics, geocoding, routing, etc.), and back-office systems (subscriber management, credit accounting) will always remain in the US. Regional hosting will be for new subscriptions only.
Support for Social Logins with GitHub
Social logins can be an efficient way for organization members to create and manage access to an ArcGIS Online organization account. With the March update of ArcGIS Online, GitHub will be added as a supported social login.
Please note that all planned updates are subject to change. A comprehensive list of implemented changes will be provided in our What's New email, blog, and documentation.
