Admin Tools | Data and Security FAQ

Does Admin Tools for ArcGIS Online store or access my username and password?

  • GEO Jobe never has access to your username and password. As per Esri’s best practices, Admin Tools for ArcGIS leverages OAuth 2.0 to generate a token which represents your session and is used to commit actions against the platform on your behalf.
  • Admin Tools uses OAuth 2.0 through Esri's REST API (already part of their existing Esri Enterprise environment) so the port is 80 if installed for HTTP and 443 if installed for HTTPS with SSL.

Does GEO Jobe have access to my account if I use Admin Tools for ArcGIS Online?

  • No. GEO Jobe does not have access to your account. All code related to Admin Tools for ArcGIS Online runs in your local browsers on your machine and executes requests directly against the platform through Esri’s REST API.

See Figure 1 for more information.
