Advanced settings

ArcGIS Hub includes advanced settings that allow you to configure sign-in options for people (employees and community members) signing in on your hub sites. You can also configure an information banner for your hub based on the banner set in ArcGIS Online.

Configure sign-in options

Using Hub Settings, ArcGIS Hub administrators can access their hub's employee organization and community organization to manage their respective sign-in options and accounts.

Configure sign-in options for the employee organization

The employee organization is the primary ArcGIS Online subscription your staff uses to access ArcGIS Hub and manage authoritative content. By accessing this organization, you can manage employee accounts and enable staff from other organizations to join your hub.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS Hub as an administrator.
  2. On the Overview page, click Hub Settings in the upper right corner.
  3. Optionally, check the Allow ArcGIS Online users from other organizations to sign in check box.

    Enable this feature if your team plans to collaborate with stakeholders who are members of another ArcGIS Online organization. For example, check this box if your department manages its own employee organization and you want to collaborate internally with another department that also has their own ArcGIS Online subscription. You won't need to provide them with access to your employee organization or give them a community account if you're using ArcGIS Hub Premium.

  4. Click the Employee Organization link to your subscription's home page to invite or add new members.

    The home page for the employee organization is not directly related to ArcGIS Hub. It provides an entry point for all staff members accessing your organization's GIS, including other apps such as ArcGIS StoryMaps, Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS, and Scene Viewer.

  5. On the employee organization home page, click Organization on the primary navigation bar to start managing member accounts and user roles.

    For more information, see Invite and add members.

    When you add new members, you must assign them a user role. User roles determine the privileges the person has as a member of the employee organization. Before assigning user roles to new members, review Configure roles and privileges to determine the privileges they require. If a member requires a custom role, ensure that the role is configured before you configure the account.

Add terms and conditions to community sign in

Administrators can add terms and conditions to the sign-in page that people use when they're creating an account or signing in to a hub's community organization.

  1. Sign in to your hub's community organization as an administrator.
  2. In Hub Settings, in the Custom Sign Up Terms & Conditions section, check the Require custom Terms of Use on Sign Up form check box.
  3. Enter the text that you want to appear on the sign-in page.
  4. Click Save.

Add a logo

You can upload a logo to the sign-in prompt that appears when people need to sign in to view private content.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS Hub as an administrator.
  2. Click the Logo menu.
  3. Click Browse for Image to upload an image from file.
  4. Click Save.

Enable information banners

An information banner is a thin bar that sits atop various places in ArcGIS Online, including the Home, Gallery, and Map Viewer pages. ArcGIS Online administrators can use an information banner to alert members of status updates and other announcements. They can also use the Hub Settings option to display this banner in ArcGIS Hub.


To enable information banners for your organization, you must have a default Administrator role or have the administrative privilege assigned to your user role using Organization Settings > Organization website > Manage the organization's website.

Default administrators can assign this privilege to members who have a custom role without giving them access to additional organization settings. For more information on configuring custom roles in ArcGIS Hub, see Configure roles and privileges.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS Hub.
  2. On the Overview page, click Hub Settings in the upper right corner.
  3. In the Information Banner section, check the Display information banner across all sites and pages check box.
  4. Click Save.

    The information banner is applied to all sites and pages.

Register external links sent in emails

A hub administrator must register URLs for all external links included in emails sent from ArcGIS Hub to core team members, supporting team members, event attendees, and followers.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS Hub as a hub administrator.
  2. On Overview, click Hub Settings.
  3. Click to open the Registered Domains menu and click Add Link.
  4. Insert the web address to register.
  5. Click Save in the upper right corner of the page.

    Only hub administrators can view the list of registered web addresses.
