Configuring Business Analyst web app licenses

Available with Business Analyst license.

The Business Analyst web app, accessed through Portal for ArcGIS, applies GIS technology to extensive demographic, consumer spending, and business data to deliver on-demand, presentation-ready reports and maps.

You can purchase and download Business Analyst web app entitlements through My Esri and import the entitlements in the ArcGIS Portal Directory. You can then provision Business Analyst web app licenses to members of your portal through the portal website.

Configure Business Analyst web app licenses for your organization

After you install and configure the Business Analyst web app, configure licenses using the following steps.

Note:

The portal you specify to manage licenses is known as the licensing portal. The Business Analyst web app connects to this portal to obtain licensing information for members of your organization. If your organization has multiple portals, ensure the portal you specify is the one you want to use to manage Business Analyst web app licenses.

  1. Log in to My Esri and click My Organizations > Licensing > Provisioning.
  2. In the Provisioning dialog box, specify Product Type as Additional Portal Products. The Version, License Type, and Provision options populate automatically.

    The URL is formatted as https://portal.domain.com:7443/arcgis/portaladmin, where portal.domain.com is the fully qualified machine name where Portal for ArcGIS is installed.
