Reauthorize ArcGIS Server 10.8 with Azure Cloud Builder

The process for reauthorizing ArcGIS Server sites deployed using ArcGIS Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure is not clear to me.  Is there a way to apply a new license to existing server deployments through the Cloud Builder GUI that I am missing or do you have to RDP into the backend VMs and manually apply the new license with the Software Authorization wizard?  If it is the latter the option to add a jump box for an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment is not available in the deployment wizard so it seems odd that you need to manually configure that to reauthorize software instead of supporting it out of the box.

Hi @JamesDahlstrom,


The Azure Cloud Builder tool does not currently support reauthorization of ArcGIS Server, however this can be achieved by a custom script by using the silent authorization method, or by remoting into the host VMs manually like you suggested.
