Single Use licensing

A Single Use license is the traditional software license model in which an ArcGIS Desktop application is installed on one authorized computer for use by one person. The licensing process is managed through the My Esri website.

Single Use licenses for ArcGIS Pro are authorized through My Esri.

Because ArcGIS Pro uses the Named User license type by default, a license conversion is required before Single Use licenses can be authorized. Licenses are converted in My Esri by the software license administrator.
