Hi.

I have EVA codes for all of my students via our campus site license. I believe this will give each student the 365 day education edition/student trial license. Most of them only need access to ArcGIS Online; they do not need to download any desktop software.

However I cannot figure out how they authorize and active the EVA code to use ArcGIS Online.

When I go through this link (http://www.esri.com/landing-pages/software/arcgis/arcgis-desktop-student-trial ) it leads only to options to download desktop. I cannot find any way to activate ArcGIS Online.

I assume that the EVA code can be used for Online, including credits.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

Hi Angela (and Dr. Carter):

ArcGIS Pro can be licensed in three ways - named user account in an ArcGIS Online organization, single use, and concurrent use. We recommend using a named user account (through ArcGIS Online) for a number of different reasons, such as close connection between ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online - without being connected to a portal, one cannot Share content, hence taking away the ability to publish web maps and layers, or leverage other online content. Also, in general when using a named user model, one is taking advantage of a Web GIS pattern, can license other apps (such as GeoPlanner, Insights, etc.) through ArcGIS Online, etc. 

In terms of how provisioning can be streamlined, below are a couple of blogs related on best practices of ArcGIS Administration in general.

If you need additional named users in your ArcGIS Online organization, to accommodate demand at your university, I encourage you to talk to your Esri Account Manager.

Our students just get their own AGOL account then the administrator authorizes their request to join our organization.

There is probably official documentation somewhere but here is what we use

Thanks Dan. Our site license is through a statewide organization, not our individual campus, so students can't request to join our organization that way.

In the past I have just added students to our organization manually, but I was hoping with an EVA code that includes some credits they could just create their own accounts and access publicly shared maps that I create. 

If you have any other ideas please let me know!

Thanks.

Ahh well, You might want to see find anything in this group https://community.esri.com/groups/esri-educational-site-license-resources most are from the U.S. so there may be something pertinent in their documents

Dan, 

Do they have to have an AGOL account to authorize Pro?  What is the point of faculty members generating the EVA codes for them at all?

We mostly use AGOL and named user since downloading/updating software can be done without assistance of the faculty or account administrators and when they graduate, we can simply remove them from our organization
