ArcGIS Companion v3.1 has just been released. We have added some exciting new features and improvements to the app. Here are the highlights of the release:
Support for Storyteller user type
ArcGIS Companion now supports the Storyteller user type that was introduced in January 2020. Administrators can use the app to assign this user type to applicable members. Once assigned, you can view the included licenses on the Licenses tab of the member’s profile page.
Support for ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8
When you upgrade to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8, you’ll continue to be able to use Companion to access your organization. If this is your first time signing in to your portal with the app, you need to be on the network from where your portal is accessible. Tap the Sign In button, Add account > choose ArcGIS Enterprise, add the portal URL (such as https://myportal.esri.com/portal), tap next, and sign in using OAuth2 with your built-in account or using Enterprise login.
Bug fixes and other improvements
Based on your feedback, we’ve made the following corrections to improve your experience:
- If you’ve enabled auto sign-in from the app settings, Companion now checks if the password has changed and prompts you to enter new credentials, when applicable. This new check occurs even if the password was changed outside of the app.
- You can now remove any ArcGIS Enterprise portal URLs from the Saved URL page, including inactive portal URLs.
- Product icons are no longer missing on the manage licenses page.
Please note that the ArcGIS Companion app version has jumped from 2.5 to 3.1. In case you missed our v2.5 update announcement You can read all about it here.
