How do I use ArcGIS Pro without an internet connection?

You can use ArcGIS Pro without an Internet connection by obtaining a Single Use license which allows you to use the software with or without an Internet connection.

To get authorization to use a Single Use license, you must meet the following conditions:

  • ArcGIS Pro is already installed on the computer for which it is being authorized
  • You have a license file from OneIT
  • Have an internet connection during the authorization process

If you meet the above conditions, Submit a Help Ticket requesting a ArcGIS Pro Single Use license from the OneIT Service Desk.

Here are the steps to authorize ArcGIS Pro with a Single Use license using the license file you have obtained from OneIT:

  1. Save the license file OneIT sent you to your computer
  2. Open ArcGIS Pro
  3. Click Configure licensing at the bottom of the ArcGIS Sign In page
    The Licensing dialog box appears.
Note: If you bypass the ArcGIS Sign In page, click the Settings tab on the ArcGIS Pro start page. On the settings page click on the Licensing side tab. At the bottom of the page, Click on Configure your licensing options.
  1. On the License Type drop-down arrow, click on Single Use License
  2. For the License level choose Advanced
  3. Click on the Authorize button at the bottom of the page
  4. Select the option "I have received an authorization file from Esri and am now ready to finish the authorization process."
  5.  Browse to the license file you saved 
  6.  Click the Next button
  7.  Select "Authorize with Esri now over the Internet." 
  8.  Click Next
  9.  Review the pre-populated personal information and enter any additional required information 
  10. On the next panels, you will see the authorization numbers entered for the core product and all the extensions 
  11. Click "Finish" to complete the authorization process.

After the Single Use license is authorized, you can use ArcGIS Pro offline (if, for instance, you're working in the field) with or without an Internet connection, no need to be connected to the VPN.
