Configure home page

As an administrator of your organization, you can set up the look and functionality of your organization's home page. This is a privilege reserved for the administrator role.

  1. Sign in to the portal website as an administrator of your organization.
  2. Click Organization at the top of the site and click Edit Settings.
  3. Click Home Page on the left side of the page.
  4. Configure any of the following home page settings:
    • For Background Image, select the default image, upload your own image, or specify no background image.

      If you upload your own image, the image is positioned at the top and center of the page. The image repeats horizontally if it is smaller than the browser or device window. For best results, if you want a single, nonrepeating background image, the image should be 1,920 pixels wide (or smaller if your users are on smaller screens). The website does not resize the image. It is not recommended to upload a file greater than 1 MB in size.

    • For Banner, select an image or choose to create a custom design. For best results, your image should be 960 pixels wide. To create the custom design, you can use the rich text editor or switch to the HTML source code view.
    • For Featured Content, choose a group whose content you want featured on the home page. The default setting is to display content from the built-in Featured Maps and Apps group. Up to 12 items in the group can appear on the home page. You can also choose not to feature any content.

      To change how the items are sorted, select a field in the drop-down list next to Sorted by. To change how the items are ordered, check or uncheck the box next to Ascending. If you change the sort field or order here, the items on the group page, as well as on embedded galleries or gallery apps, are also changed.


      In most cases, administrators want to share items that are either publicly accessible or shared with all users of your ArcGIS Enterprise portal. If a user doesn't have access to an item, they cannot view it in the Featured Content section. To share a user's content with the Featured Maps and Apps group, first ensure they are a member of the group, as otherwise their content cannot be shared to the group.

  5. Click Save to save the changes you've made.

The home page cannot be embedded in other web apps, such as Story Maps. This is because the X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN header is used to prevent a security vulnerability for the portal.
