The following three licensing options are available with ArcGIS Pro:
All licenses for ArcGIS Pro are provisioned as Named User license by default. With a Named User license, you can use your ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS account credentials to sign in on any machine that has ArcGIS Pro installed, and the application runs with the level and extensions specified by your organization administrator in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS. With a Named User license, a user can run ArcGIS Pro on up to three machines simultaneously.
If you want to use a type of licensing other than the default, you can convert your Named User licenses to Concurrent Use or Single Use licenses in My Esri.
Concurrent Use licensing with ArcGIS Pro follows the same management and authorization steps as ArcMap. With a Concurrent Use license, your machine points to a License Manager Server for license authorization from a shared pool of licenses, and you can choose your license level and extensions as long as the desired license is available. This allows for more users to have ArcGIS Pro installed on their machine than total number of licenses. Simultaneous use of ArcGIS Pro is limited by the total number of available licenses in the License Manager Server.
Single Use licenses are authorized on a single machine by one or more unique authorization numbers obtained from My Esri. Once authorized, anyone with access to that machine can use ArcGIS Pro on or off the network.
The tables and diagrams below compare the different license types and describe the steps to complete the licensing process depending on your role.
