Your guide to assigning licences
- ArcGIS Pro licencing options
By default, ArcGIS Pro is licenced with a Named User licence that is managed through an ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise organisation. If you purchase ArcGIS Pro as a stand-alone application, or as part of an application bundle, this is the only licence type available.
- Converting ArcGIS Pro licences
An ArcGIS Desktop licence is either Single Use or Concurrent Use based on your preference at the point of purchase. ArcGIS Pro Named User licences can be converted to the same licence type as the corresponding ArcGIS Desktop licence and authorised with that licence type.
- Named User licencing
- Single Use licencing
A Single Use licence authorises one person to use ArcGIS Pro on one machine, such as a desktop computer. Because ArcGIS Pro uses the Named User licence type by default, a licence conversion is required before Single Use licences can be authorised.
Licences are converted in My Esri by the software licence administrator. To convert your Named User licence to a Single Use licence, please contact Esri Malaysia.
- Concurrent Use licencing
A Concurrent Use licence enables multiple users to share access to ArcGIS Pro from any computer on a network or from a virtual machine. ArcGIS Licence Manager software installed on the network manages the distribution of a pool of shared licences.
The number of Concurrent Use licences in the shared pool determines the number of users who can use an application at a given time. When a user starts ArcGIS Pro, the application sends a request to ArcGIS Licence Manager to determine if a licence is available. If a licence is available, the application starts, and the number of available ArcGIS Pro licences decreases by one. When the user exits ArcGIS Pro, the licence returns to the pool.
Because ArcGIS Pro uses the Named User licence type by default, a licence conversion is required before Concurrent Use licences can be authorised.
Licences are converted in My Esri by the software licence administrator. To convert your Named User licence to a Concurrent Use licence, please contact Esri Malaysia.
