Is EDN license necessary for authorizing Portal for ArcGIS

My company has Portal for ArcGIS for two environments: DEV and TEST. The Portal has software authorization issue and needs to reactive for both two environments. The ESRI help tutorial says the first step is to create a provisiong file or get an authorization number:

"Visit My Esri to obtain your authorization number (similar in format to ECP123456789) for use in the software or to create a provisioning file, which can be used to complete the authorization process."


My question is that how can I obtain my authorization number or create a provisioning file? Does it require an EDN license? Can I use my own esri account to obtain the authorization number or provisioning file for both DEV and TEST?


I am a GIS developer. My company bought an EDN license for me, so what can I do by using EDN? Could anyone provide me related documents?


Any help would be appreciated!!! Many thanks!!!
