 My Esri Release Items

 

General

 

  • With the list of functionality on the licensing tab growing, the side navigation has been updated to better highlight the newer tools (tags, configuration, recover lost license), and emphasize the License Esri Products workflow.

 

Manage Users

 

  • When inviting a user to join an organization, the option to add then as an authorized caller is now available.
  • When a user's access to My Esri is limited with a time range, they will now see a message 30 days before their access will end. The message lets them know who to contact if they want to extend their access. They can dismiss the message, but it will reappear after they sign in again in a new browser session.
  • The issue where the User Permissions Grid could not be exported has been resolved.

 

Licensing

 

  • Added a button on the License Esri Products page to use a License File Configuration.
  • Added a form to the Convert ArcGIS Pro Named User Licenses for users to request to convert back to named users.
  • Fixed an issue where notes were being removed in Authorization Numbers Details.
  • Grouped duplicate items in ArcGIS Pro license files so they do not show as duplicates when installing the file.

 

Transactions

 

  • Updated the Renew Maintenance Quotes page to exclude quotes where materials are marked as not eligible for online renewal.

 

Keeping track of your ArcGIS Online accounts has just been made a little easier on My Esri. We’ve added a View ArcGIS Online page to the Licensing tab.

 

From this page, you can select the ArcGIS Online accounts associated with your organization and see the remaining credits, activation and renewal dates, subscription type, and the overall status of the subscription. You can also keep track of the membership within the selected ArcGIS Online subscription and the available licenses associated with it.

 

The page is for viewing your organization’s ArcGIS Online subscriptions. Activating a subscription will still need to be done through ArcGIS Online. But, we have provided a link on this page that will let you link your ArcGIS accounts to make it simple to switch between My Esri and ArcGIS Online.

We will be moving forward with a release of My Esri on Wednesday, January 29th, at 5 pm (PST). Please see the below key enhancements and fixes that will be included.
