About "Type" and "Access" for Users


Type is associated with the user's Esri Access, which determines if they can only use ArcGIS Online, or if they can use the other Esri Platforms, like GeoNET.

  • If it's set to ArcGIS Only, that user can only access ArcGIS Online.

  • If it is set to both, they can access those other platforms (not to be confused with products). 


Access is similar to a user's privacy settings.

  • If it is set to Private, then their bio, etc. will not be available to others, and the username will not be searchable for other users.

  • If it is set to Public, then everyone can search the user.

  • If it is set to Org, then just those in the user's organization can search them.
