Blog Post created by kpinkston-esristaff Employee on Aug 29, 2014
Participating in the ArcGIS Pro Beta program is just as easy at Beta 5 as in previous beta releases. However, there are a few things users and their ArcGIS Online administrators need to know heading into this release.What do you need to know?

At Beta 5, there is a new authorization process for ArcGIS Pro that is managed through ArcGIS Online. This change is in preparation for the ArcGIS Pro licensing model moving forward. Beta 5 and subsequent releases will require ArcGIS Pro licenses to be assigned to organization users by an administrator, through a new set of hosted tools in ArcGIS Online.What do you need to do?

If you are a non-admin user, please contact the administrator of your organization to request they assign an ArcGIS Pro license to your username. Once that is done, launch Beta 5 and you will be able to log in.

If you are the administrator of your organization, please log in to your org and find the “Manage Licenses” button. From here, begin configuring licenses for individual users or a group of users that wish to participate in the ArcGIS Pro Beta program.For further details, please review the help.
