1. Requirements for receiving a licensed build from GEO Jobe
In order to receive a licensed build of Admin Tools for Portal, the following information must be provided to GEO Jobe.
The URL where Admin Tools will be installed (the URL that will appear in the browser’s address bar when accessing the tools).
The URL of each Portal including the host name and web adapter.
Whether or not IWA is being used for each Portal. For Portals not using IWA, an OAuth App ID must be created for each Portal via registering a Web Mapping Application item. The URL of Admin Tools must be set in the Valid Redirect URI’s of the Web Mapping Application item. If the Admin Tools is being hosted on the same server as a Portal, the option for app registration may not show up and this is a known issue by ESRI.
2. Request a new build from GEO Jobe
All of the above information will be stored in our license database so that any future builds will already contain your App IDs and Portal URLs. We use this information to generate a custom build just for your environment.
3. Unzip the contents to the zip file provided by GEO Jobe
Unzip the contents of the zip file to the web-accessible directory provided to GEO Jobe in step 1.
