ArcGIS Online provides a proprietary token-based authentication mechanism where users can authenticate themselves by providing a token instead of a username and password. An ArcGIS token is a string of encrypted information that contains the user’s name, the token expiration time, and some proprietary information. A user presents this token whenever accessing a secured resource.
You may need to generate a token manually when troubleshooting services or automating procedures in ArcGIS.
This short blog demonstrates two ways to quickly obtain a token in ArcGIS Online.
Raster and image data can be shared as image layers to ArcGIS Enterprise. An image layer provides access to raster data through a web service. Adding a cloud data store item to portal allows you to publish imagery layers from image files stored in a cloud storage location such as an Azure Blob storage container or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
This blog provides a brief overview of the main requirements and workflow to publish imagery stored in an Azure Blob storage container to ArcGIS Enterprise.
ArcGIS Desktop users will be familiar with the Synchronize metadata tool in ArcMap/ArcCatalog – This tool allows users to update an ArcGIS item’s metadata (for example, spatial reference) with the current properties of the item.
However, in ArcGIS Pro, this ‘Synchronise metadata’ tool does not exist as a standalone Geoprocessing Tool (there is no metadata toolset in the conversion toolbox, either). So where is it? and how can we synchronise multiple layers at once using ArcPy?

The Waze for Cities program provides Local Government Authorities and Transport departments access to real-time, anonymous incident and slow-down information direct from drivers. It is a free, two-way data exchange partnership, empowering the public sector with improved situational awareness, comminucation with drivers and assists with infrastructure planning.
ArcGIS Velocity allows you to ingest the Waze feed and use if for incident detection, response and pattern analysis workflows.
Some examples of how this feed could be used:
Generate customer request for reported potholes, abandoned cars and illegal dumping.
Weekly ‘Top 5’ traffic hotspot areas in your Local Government Area
Road closure alerts – this feed from Waze was used during/after the 2019/20 bushfires
Level crossing removal – how has the traffic changed before/during/after these projects
Notifcations if crashes are reported near vital facilities
