Manage portal connections from ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Pro can connect to ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise . Connections can be added, set to active, removed, and edited from the Portals page in ArcGIS Pro. Additionally, you can switch your active portal from the Sign In menu Sign-in Status in the upper corner of ArcGIS Pro.

Note:

If you do not have any portal connections, the Sign In menu will not be visible. Portal connections can still be added by clicking the Project tab on the ribbon and clicking the Portals page.

Add a portal connection

  1. Click the Project tab on the ribbon and click the Portals page.

    You can also access the Portals page from the Manage Portals link in the Sign In menu Sign-in Status.

  2. Click Add Portal.
  3. Enter the URL for the portal on the Add Portal dialog box and click OK.
    • ArcGIS Enterprisehttps://webadaptorhost.domain.com/webadaptorname
    • ArcGIS Onlinehttps://www.arcgis.com
    • ArcGIS Online organization—https://yourorg.maps.arcgis.com

  4. Optionally, sign in to the portal. Right-click the URL and click Sign in. Enter your user name and password.
  5. To make the new connection your active portal, right-click the URL and click Set As Active Portal.

Note:

If you connect to your ArcGIS Online organization's URL (for example, https://yourorg.maps.arcgis.com) and the administrator of your organization changes the organization's short name (in the same example, yourorg), you'll need to edit the portal connection to match the new short name to share content and consume portal items.

Set as active portal

By default, ArcGIS Online is your active portal. Your active portal connection is your online workspace. Content from your active portal will appear on the Portals tab of the Catalog pane. You can switch between portals by changing which portal is set to active. On the Portals page, a green check mark Active Portal indicates which portal is active.

To make a portal connection active, do one of the following:

  • Click the Project tab on the ribbon and click the Portals page, right-click the URL from the portal connection list, and click Set As Active Portal.
  • Click the Sign In menu Sign-in Status and click Switch Active Portal. Click the URL from the portal connection list.
Note:

While you may be signed in to multiple portals, you can only have one active portal in each instance of ArcGIS Pro.

Remove and edit portal connections

To remove a portal connection, click the URL from the portal connection list and click Delete. If you have licensed ArcGIS Pro as a named user, you will not be able to remove the connection to your licensing portal. A key Licensing Portal indicates which portal is your licensing portal.

Note:

If the URL you are removing is your active portal, you will automatically be signed out and you will no longer be connected.

To edit a portal connection, right-click the URL from the portal connection list and click Edit Portal Connection. When you finish editing the portal connection information, click OK to save the changes.
