Portal for ArcGIS is similar to ArcGIS Online but works on the intranet. In order to activate this software you need to choose the number of level 1 and level 2 named users you would like to have on the Portal and create an authorization number for it on My Esri -> My Organization -> Licensing -> Generate Portal for ArcGIS licenses. Once you have the authorization number, you can activate it on the Portal that will open up the number of level 1 and level 2 named users that you created the authorization for.

 

  • Up until version 10.5, we only had Level 2s which gives you full access to the software
  • From 10.5 onwards, we offer Level 1 and Level 2
    • Level 2 is the same as earlier, with full access to the software
    • Level 1 is only read access
