Overview Esri System Destinations There are three important destinations to access and administer your software: My Esri: Your one-stop destination for software downloads and authorization numbers to install and activate your licenses and developer subscriptions, admin your account, training, and other important access points for your team. arcgis.com or ArcGIS Online: is Esri’s GIS SaaS software.

Also, ArcGIS Online provisions licenses for per-user licensed software, such as ArcGIS Pro. developers.arcgis.com : Manage and access your enterprise level subscriptions through My Esri ‘Developer’ tab, which will bring you to your developer dashboard Accounts Every team member can have a My Esri account and should be invited to connect to your unique customer number to gain the proper admin rights. Each subscription also results in a unique set of credentials (user types/named users). We recommend using a spreadsheet and recording these credentials for reference. We also recommend organizing your individual team member’s accounts as follows: 1 x My Esri Credentials: For team members who need administrative privileges or direct access to the software. 1 x ArcGIS Online Organization: Your commercial subscription and should be used as your PRIMARY PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT for team members who work with production content and services.
