Some organizations have a requirement to work in completely disconnected environments, where access to the internet is unreliable or not available at all. For these types of environments, Esri has released the Survey123 website installer via the My Esri site.
The Survey123 website installer lets you host your own copy of the Survey123 website and the Survey123 REST API, which is used by Survey123 Connect and the Survey123 web application.
The Survey123 website installer is designed to be configured against your ArcGIS Enterprise deployment, enabling you to work with Survey123 within the boundaries of your own network infrastructure.
You should only install the Survey123 website if you have a specific requirement to host the Survey123 website or Survey123 REST API on your own infrastructure. There is no additional benefit to using the installed Survey123 website, but there are some disadvantages and limitations. For example, the setup and maintenance overhead, and the absence of the feature report functionality. In most cases survey123.arcgis.com should be the preference.
You can expect the near full functionality of the Survey123 system, including:
A notable exception is the Survey123 feature report service, which cannot be installed locally.
Configuring a local copy of the Survey123 website is a process reserved for ArcGIS administrators with a good understanding of ArcGIS Enterprise and all of its components. Survey123 Connect can also be configured during this process to access survey templates and samples from ArcGIS Enterprise.
