I am going to be upgrading my ArcGIS Enterprise from 10.6.1 to 10.7.1, and am confused on the license files required.  I have the .json file that seems to include the user types, but my admin did not give me a .prvc file for authorizing the actual software, which has been required in the past.  Do I not need that file anymore and just need the .json file, or do I need both files and am just missing the .prvc. 

Thanks

Hi Jay,

Starting at 10.7, you just need the .json file.  No .prvc is needed.

Thank you!  I wish that was explicitly stated somewhere - a link included in the Esri licensing email that had the .json file attached points to How to license your ArcGIS Enterprise portal at 10.7 prerelease , which just says "When installing ArcGIS Enterprise, you will be asked to provide both the Enterprise portal license file (.json) as well as your server authorization file."

Anyway, this clears things up quite nicely.  Thanks again.
