How to add additional named users for Portal for ArcGIS

Discussion created by ckayitana on May 8, 2020



I Once struggled to find how to add additional named users to Portal for ArcGIS in Linux and finally got it.

I Thought it would be nice to share it here in case it will help someone.


It's pretty simple; you just have to re authorise the licenses using a license file either .prvc or .ecp.


${HOME}/arcgis/portal/tools/authorizeSoftware -e {.ecp file}

Authorizing Portal for ArcGIS—Portal for ArcGIS (10.6) | Documentation for ArcGIS Enterprise 


Note: you have to add all licenses into the new file, i.e: the new licenses with the already existing or authorized license, the reason is that when you re authorise, it overrides the existing ones.
