About ArcGIS Server licensing roles

ArcGIS Enterprise offers several licensing roles for its ArcGIS Server component. These licensing roles provide a range of powerful functions to the ArcGIS platform as deployed in your own infrastructure. Each licensing role has different capabilities and system requirements. Learn more about each role:

The role of ArcGIS Server that you license will determine the functionality available. See the ArcGIS Enterprise functionality matrix for specific functionality details.

License ArcGIS Server for a role

To enable one of these ArcGIS Server licensing roles, you'll authorize the software with an authorization file for the licensing role.

To ensure enough machine resources will be available to support server operations, review the system requirements for each server licensing role. Multiple server license roles can be applied to the same server, but we recommend you deploy separate servers for each role.
