What can you add to your portal?

The following list shows the types of items you can add to your portal. Services published to ArcGIS Server sites you have federated with your portal are added automatically as items in your portal. All items added directly to the portal or added when a service is published to a federated server appear in the personal storage space (My Content) of the account that added or published the item.

You must have privileges to create content to add any of the following to your portal.

You can upload files up to 1 GB in size to My Content through a web browser. You can upload larger files through ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap to support publishing layers to Portal for ArcGIS.
