Single Use licensing

A Single Use license authorizes one person to use ArcGIS Pro. That person can use the software on one computer at a time. A Single Use license does not require signing in to an ArcGIS organization to use the software.

ArcGIS Pro Single Use licenses can be obtained in two ways:

  • Directly from Esri.
  • Through license conversion if the ArcGIS Pro license is acquired as part of an ArcGIS Desktop deployment. A Named User license can be converted to Single Use if the ArcGIS Desktop license is Single Use. Licenses are converted in My Esri by ArcGIS software license administrators.

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


ArcGIS Pro Named User licenses that are acquired as GIS Professional user types or as add-on licenses can't be converted to Single Use licenses.
