Scenario: If I have ArcGIS Enterprise Standard, I get 5 Portal level 2 named users. In addition to this, if I have 5 ArcGIS Desktop, I'll get 5 ArcGIS Online level 2 named users.
Kindly consider the below three questions separately.
Answers to any of these questions will be appreciated.
I am pretty sure the answer to Q1 is no. Those 2 named users will be tied to the Organization you also get for free as part of you annual maintenance. The org and named usersw are a bundle deal and can't be separated.
I am also curious about moving users between ArcGIS Online and Portal. We have been using ArcGIS Online for quite awhile and are just now setting up Portal. We would like to move some of our users "in-house" (to Portal). Is that possible?
Hi Idaho Fish and Game,
It's best to contact your local Esri account manager/Distributor to check if you can "switch" your ArcGIS Online named user accounts to become Portal for ArcGIS named user accounts. I believe it is possible, but they would need to help you obtain a new license file (from Esri Customer Service) for Portal for ArcGIS (to enable additional Portal members).
Hope this helps,
