After ArcGIS Enterprise is deployed, you can begin to configure the deployment to support the functionality in Insights. These configuration settings allow Insights users to connect to data warehouses, geocode data, and access all of the analysis capabilities Insights offers.
Configure utility services
Configure utility services required to enable specific functionality in your portal, such as performing analysis that depends on utility services. The table below lists each utility service and the Insights feature it supports.
Allows users to add location to their datasets by specifying an address. For user instructions, see Enable location for your data.
Enables the use of dissolved boundaries for Buffer/Drive Times.
Enables Find Nearest.
Allows users to add demographic information to a location or area using Enrich Data.
Allows users to specify a means of transportation, such as walking time or trucking distance, for Buffer/Drive Times.
You can configure your portal to use utility services from ArcGIS Online. See Configure ArcGIS Online utility services for details.
If you are running Insights in a disconnected environment, you must configure the service from a federated or hosting server.
Scheduling must be enabled in your ArcGIS Enterprise organization before you can schedule updates to Insights reports. You can configure ArcGIS Enterprise to support scheduling and change other configurations using the gw-config.properties file in the following location on Portal for ArcGIS: arcgis/portal/framework/webapps/arcgis#sharing/WEB-INF/classes/resources.
Scheduled updates are available beginning in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1.
Enable or disable scheduling for the organization.
The maximum number of schedules that can be created by an individual user. All schedule types (Insights reports, ArcGIS Notebooks, and so on) count toward the total.
The number of previous runs saved in the schedule history.
The maximum number of failures in a row for a single schedule. If the maximum number of failures is met, the scheduled updates are paused.
Configure boundary layers
Configure boundary layers to allow organization members to use feature layers containing boundary information for supported countries in their maps and analyses.
When you configure boundary layers, users can add these layers from the Boundaries tab of the Add to page window. Boundary layers are another way for users to add location to their data. For user instructions, see the following:
Configure ArcGIS Living Atlas content
Configure subscriber and premium content from ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World to make this ArcGIS Online collection available in your portal. ArcGIS Living Atlas content that does not require you to sign in to an ArcGIS Online account is available by default.
The geocoder in your organization must support batch geocoding to be used to enable location on multiple addresses. For more information on geocoders available for configuration, see Configure utility services.
After ArcGIS Enterprise is deployed and configured, the next step is to install Insights in ArcGIS Enterprise. For instructions, see Install ArcGIS Insights in ArcGIS Enterprise.
