Identity gives you access to ArcGIS – wherever you are

With a unique, secure ArcGIS identity, you can unlock and use maps and apps on any device, anywhere. You can join groups, access resources and easily share geographic information with other people.



What does identity mean for you

What does identity mean for you?

An ArcGIS identity allows you to:

  • Save items under your name and access them later

  • Have favourites, special privileges or full administrative access

  • Keep items private until you're ready to share them with another person, group or the public



Your identity travels with you

Your identity travels with you

Your identity (named user credential) associates you with ArcGIS privileges no matter where you are. Log in on any device, anytime, and have access to all the maps, apps, data and analysis you're entitled to. This is similar to how identity works with other familiar solutions such as Salesforce, SharePoint and SAP.



Access more capabilities

Access more capabilities

With your identity, you can access an increasing amount of standard and premium capabilities, including:

Ready-to-use apps, app builders and connectors:

  • Collector for ArcGIS

  • Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS

  • ArcGIS Open Data (for publishing)

  • Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (for building apps)

  • Esri Maps for Office

  • Esri Maps for Salesforce

  • ArcGIS Pro (if you are entitled to do so)

Improved administrative capabilities:

  • Efficient, flexible licensing that can be applied across the entire organisation

  • A means of gathering user-level reporting and metrics on usage

  • The ability to ensure users have the software and privileges they need

  • A way to identify authoritative users and their content

  • Oversight of how named users interact with the platform and forums



How it works

How it works

Your identity provides you with access to a comprehensive suite of apps and maps that you can use in your day-to-day work. The same is true for premium apps, such as ArcGIS Pro and Esri Business Analyst Online.

When you log in to apps, your identity makes all your maps available to you, which allows you to be productive immediately.



One login unlocks everything

One login unlocks everything!

Because ArcGIS supports identity across the platform, it allows you to connect to other management systems. For example, you can link ArcGIS to single sign-on systems – so you only need to log in once to access everything you need.
