I have a question regarding working with Portal for ArcGIS inside an organization. By now our organization is upgrading to an ArcGIS for Server Standard. So in the future, we can use the Portal for ArcGIS. We are having only 5 Users with Desktop Licenses, which are “named Users”.
a) Is it possible to share content in our Organization to not named users?
b) Is it possible that not named users share content via ESRI Maps for Office? And/Or use othes Apps like the Collector for ArcGIS?
It would be interesting for us to know that.
Thanks in advance!
Depending on the license level of ArcGIS for Server as from 10.3 you are entitled to a number of named licenses:
Per ArcGIS for Desktop license you are entitled to 1 named user. You can decide to use it as a named user for Portal or for ArcGIS Online for Organizations.
Not sure, but I suppose if you publish a resource in Portal for all public (and Portal is configured to allow access from anonymous users), that those users may have access to the resource as well.
To use Esri Maps for Office you need a named user. In case of Collector for ArcGIS you will probably need a named user to consume the resources you publish.
Also have a look at this thread: Named Users? and this presentation: http://proceedings.esri.com/library/userconf/devsummit-euro13/papers/dse_23.pdf
