Imagine the scenario, you have licenses for a number of Esri, ArcGIS applications that are in heavy demand by your users. For example, you have access to an ArcGIS Pro license(s) and Drone2Map but you don’t have licenses for all users. you need an efficient way to grant user access to these apps within your organization. The Add Entitlements tool will make this a breeze for you to manage.


Start your instance of Admin Tools for ArcGIS – When the application was first provisioned from the ArcGIS Marketplace you may have bookmarked the launch url, if not you can launch the app from – this is the url you will want to bookmark.
