How do I activate my ArcGIS for Personal Use subscription?


So, you have just purchased a new Personal Use License and you have been wondering what the next step is. This blog will outline the steps to activate your subscription.

After you purchase your ArcGIS Personal Use license, you will receive an email containing two activation tokens for both My Esri and ArcGIS Online from Esri Australia Client Services team. This will take 3 to 5 business days from the time of purchase to arrive (if you are having trouble finding this, please check your spam folder as they can sometimes be filtered out by your email provider).

  1. You will need to create a Public Account and activate My Esri.
  2. Next, you will need to activate your ArcGIS Online account, using your newly created Public Account.
  3. Finally, you will need to download ArcGIS Pro and sign in with your ArcGIS ArcGIS online account.

For additional products such as ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap), please refer to the following blog for information regarding download and authorization: Authorising ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) Single Use
