Configure languages returned in search results

ArcGIS Enterprise includes ready-to-use content for your organization's members to use such as maps and apps, feature collection templates, raster function templates, and styles. This content is available in many languages. By default, organizations include only the English set of Esri-provided content. You can update the organization to include or omit content in additional languages as desired. When you or your organization's members search for content, results will be returned for those languages you've specified.


Member-added content is not impacted by this setting. Language preferences only apply to the Esri-provided content in the organization.

Configure search results

Follow these steps to configure the languages for search results:

  1. Sign in to the Portal Administrator Directory as a default administrator.
  2. Click System > Languages.

    This page displays the portal languages and specifies the ones that are currently configured for the organization.

  3. Click Update.
  4. Select the languages you want to display in search results.
  5. Click Update.

    The list of languages reads true or false for each language, depending on whether you selected the language.

Search results now display Esri-provided content from only those languages you specified in the Portal Administrator Directory. To update configured languages, follow the same steps above. The configured languages are preserved when upgrading the organization.
