ArcGIS 10.5 and the ArcGIS Online December Update have been released and as part of this we introduced a new tier of named user called Level 1 Named User.
Why a New Named User Level?
Many of you have asked for the ability to share private information more broadly with others in your organization. We realize that you create a lot of valuable information products—analysis results, dashboards, maps, and more—that others need to view and use in order to make decisions.
This new Level 1 Named User is in addition to the Level 2 Named User (formerly called Named User) and is a cost-effective way to share those important information products in your organization without giving up control over what information is seen by whom and how it is used. And all of this is accomplished using the same sharing workflows that you already have in place.
What Can This New Level 1 Named Users Do?
- View private content shared within your organization
- Participate in private groups (invitation only)
- Access subscription and premium ArcGIS content that is shared as part of a map, scene, or app
- Use configured apps (read only)
- Access basemaps, search for content, and use geosearch
What Can This New Level 1 Named Users Not Do?
- Create any kind of content
- Edit or make new map
- Share content to their organization or the public
- Create groups
- Manage other users, groups, or content
- Perform analysis
How Does This New Level 1 Named User Affect What I Have Today?
ArcGIS Enterprise users
- With ArcGIS Enterprise you still have the same number of User Entitlements, which are now called Level 2 Named Users and which have the same capabilities (including ArcGIS apps) as before. As part of your maintenance benefit, we are also including additional 30 Level 1 Named Users in ArcGIS Enterprise Standard and Advanced.
- You can purchase additional Level 1 and Level 2 Named Users at any time and add them to your ArcGIS Enterprise instance.
ArcGIS Online users
- All your existing Named Users have been automatically converted to Level 2 Named User. You also now have the ability to purchase additional Level 1 Named Users and add them to your ArcGIS Online subscription, just like you already can purchase additional Level 2 Named Users to expand your subscription.
ArcGIS Desktop users
- Your named User Entitlement is now referred to as a Level 2 Named User. There are no changes to the functionality you currently have access to.
ArcGIS App users
- Existing ArcGIS App users will continue to use their apps as they have been using them.
Please note that you can’t convert your current named users (Level 2) in your ArcGIS Online subscription or ArcGIS Enterprise instance to Level 1 Named Users until you’ve purchased and added Level 1 accounts to your ArcGIS Enterprise instance or ArcGIS Online subscription. Once you’ve purchased Level 1 Named Users, you can change Named User Level designations between members. ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online administrators can still configure a Level 2 Named User and create custom roles and define privileges, just like they have been able to do.
