There are several settings that need to be set by the administrator of an organization before Insights can be used by members of the organization. The settings include granting licenses and privileges to the necessary members of the organization.
There are several privileges that are required to use Insights, as well as some that are recommended or only required for certain functions.
Required user types and privileges
Insights users must have one of the following user types:
- Insights Analyst
- GIS Professional
The following privileges are also required to use Insights:
- Use maps and apps
- Create content
- Publish hosted web layers
- Perform analysis
The required privileges are included in the Publisher and Administrator roles. They can also be granted through custom roles. Every organization must have at least one member with Administrator privileges.
The following are required to perform certain functions in Insights, but are not required to use the application. It is suggested that all Insights users have these privileges to make use of all of the functionality in Insights.
The Geocoding privilege is required to enable location on a dataset using the Address method. All default roles (Viewer, Data Editor, User, Publisher, and Administrator) include the Geocoding privilege.
Insights licenses must be granted to users before they can access Insights. See Manage licenses for more information.
The Insights Analyst user type includes an Insights license.
Users without an Insights license can still view pages that have been shared with them if they have an Essential Apps Bundle and any user type. Publicly shared pages can be seen by anyone, including users who do not have an ArcGIS Online account, provided the user has access to the URL for the shared page in the Page Viewer, or the page is embedded into a public forum such as a web page or story map.
