How to Add licenses and Authorize Extensions to an Individual Within an ArcGIS Online Organization

This step-by-step guide demonstrates how to add licenses and authorize extensions to an individual within an ArcGIS Online Organization. This process is optimized for adding multiple licenses and extensions to a single user rather than to multiple users.


  1. Log Into your ArcGIS Online Organization


  2. Navigate to the “Organization” Tab in the main ribbon and then to the “Members” tab in the sub-ribbon. You will see a table listing members of your organization.


  3. Using the search bar in the upper left corner of the screen, search for the username you wish to add licenses/extensions to. After you have found your name/username in the members table, click on the 3-dots icon at the far right of the row containing your name/username.

  4. A dialog box will appear. Select “Manage add-on licenses”

  5. A new window will appear that will be titled “Manage add-on licenses for <Your Name>”. You will see listed all of the available licenses and extensions authorized for your ArcGIS organization along with how many of those licenses/extensions are available.

  6. On the left side of the screen, click the check box of every license or extension you wish to assign to the user.

  7. When you have selected all of the licenses/extensions, click “Save” in the bottom right hand corner of the window.
