Survey123 configuration for an enterprise GIS

When deploying Survey123 in your enterprise GIS, you can configure properties in the app to suit your needs. Properties can be configured at either the enterprise level (for example, using a portal URL or sign-in requirements) or the ArcGIS organization level (for example, using default basemaps or a portal theme).

Enterprise properties can be embedded in a custom build of Survey123 or configured as part of a mobile device management (MDM) deployment of Survey123. On Windows only, enterprise properties can also be configured by creating registry keys (typically via a script) or using Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager.

ArcGIS organization properties are configured in the Survey123 website.

To learn more about using these properties in an MDM solution, see ArcGIS Secure Mobile Implementation Patterns.

On Windows, these properties can be configured by creating registry keys. The registry keys are not created by default at the time of installation, but you can create them at anytime in the following well-known registry location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ESRI\ArcGISSurvey123

Although registry keys and values are not case-sensitive, it is recommended that you use the case shown above, as other Esri apps use the same location. The following image shows the string values for the ArcGISSurvey123 registry key that correspond to each parameter in the table above.

ArcGIS organization properties

Properties can be configured in your ArcGIS organization to customize Survey123. These properties are set in the Survey123 website by your organization administrator. To learn more, see Organization settings.
