Licensing requirements for spatial analysis

The administrator of your organization needs to grant you the required privileges to perform analysis. You must have the privileges to create, update, and delete content; publish hosted feature layers; and perform spatial analysis.

The required privileges are available through the following user types and roles:

  • Creator or GIS Professional user type
  • Publisher, Facilitator, or Administrator role, or an equivalent custom role

Raster analysis tools and functions require additional privileges for imagery analysis, including ArcGIS Image for ArcGIS Online.

Additional privileges may be required for some tools. The tables below summarize the licensing requirements for all tools.
