Can any Esri representative explain how credits are monitored when using on-premises solution? Example, Portal for ArcGIS (not in Esri cloud but inside a private cloud) with Data Appliances loaded with the World Geocoding Service. How do successfully geocoded addresses get charged?

I'm not from Esri, but it has been my understanding that AGOL credits are charged for batch (multi-location) geocoding but not for single-address geocodes (although this isn't stated explicitly in Esri's help section; it could have changed or I could simply be wrong). 

The documentation also states that credits are charged if you are storing the results of a geocode in AGOL:

- An ArcGIS Online subscription is required whenever the results are stored. This is always the case for geocoding or batch geocoding. It might be the case for reverse geocoding. Credits will be consumed.
- No subscription is needed when doing geosearch or reverse geocoding where the results are not stored. The exception is listed in the next bullet.
- In order to use any of the geocoding capabilities, you must use the service in conjunction with ArcGIS software or an ArcGIS Online subscription. If you do not have ArcGIS software, you must purchase a subscription for geosearch, geocoding, and reverse geocoding. Credits will only be used if the results are stored.

In order to geocode a table of addresses or batch geocode, you must have an ArcGIS Online organizational subscription or a trial subscription.  When you connect to the service, you will sign in with your organizational or trial username and password.  Esri will deduct credits from your AGOL account accordingly based on your credentials.

Hi,

When using your own ArcGIS Server services or ArcGIS Server services from the ArcGIS Data Appliance, you will not incur into any credit consumption.  ArcGIS Online credits are only consumed when you use for fee ArcGIS Online services.  Unless you configure Portal for ArcGIS to specifically hit ArcGIS Online services that consume credits, you will not see any credit consumption in your ArcGIS Online account driven from Portal.

For details regarding pricing and licensing, please contact your account representative. Alternatively, you can ask questions through the 'request pricing information' link at: http://www.esri.com/about-esri/contact

Thanks,

Is this is also true if the World Geocoding Service is hosted using our ArcGIS Server services from the ArcGIS Data Appliance?
