Install ArcGIS for SharePoint

You must be a SharePoint site administrator to install and configure the add-in. There are many ways a SharePoint organization can be administered, and your installation experience may differ slightly from the procedures outlined here. Contact your SharePoint administrator for details about your organization, or refer to the Microsoft SharePoint documentation.

ArcGIS for SharePoint contains the new ArcGIS for SharePoint add-in, completely redesigned and developed to take advantage of SharePoint's modern pages. Some of the functionality you're accustomed to using in ArcGIS Maps Classic will be available with ArcGIS for SharePoint in upcoming releases. Other components, including the ArcGIS Maps Locate workflow and ArcGIS Map Search are still available in the SharePoint classic experience.

After you install the app, you must configure it before it can be used.

Install on a SharePoint site


SharePoint provides two deployment scopes for SharePoint add-ins:

  • Web scope—Install the add-in on a per-site basis.
  • Tenant scope—Install multiple add-ins in batch mode.

ArcGIS for SharePoint for the Modern environment can only be installed using the tenant deployment scope. For more information about deployment scopes, see Tenancies and deployment scopes for SharePoint Add-ins.

To add the ArcGIS for SharePoint app to a SharePoint site, do the following:

  1. From your site's Site Contents page, click add an app.

    The Your apps page appears, showing the ArcGIS for SharePoint app under Apps you can add.

  2. Click the ArcGIS for SharePoint tile.
  3. Alternatively, from the Quick Launch menu, click SharePoint Store.
  4. In the SharePoint store, search for ArcGIS.

    The search results page shows the ArcGIS for SharePoint tile.

  5. Click the ArcGIS for SharePoint tile.

    The ArcGIS for SharePoint app details page appears.

  6. Click Add it.
  7. On the Trust message that appears, click Trust It.

    The app is now listed in the Site Contents of the specified site.
