Implementing ArcGIS Solutions

About ArcGIS Solutions


ArcGIS Solutions are ready-to-use GIS maps and apps that are built to perform industry specific workflows that fit your organization’s needs. Learn more about the range of available out-of-the-box maps and apps in our GIS Templates for the Industries blog. Before implementing ArcGIS Solutions within your organization, we must first install the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool add-in for ArcGIS Pro.


The ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool add-in must be installed on each ArcGIS Pro machine that will be leveraged to deploy solutions within your organization. The add-in can be used with ArcGIS Pro versions 2.2 – 2.4, with a basic, standard, or advanced license. View more requirements and read the latest deployment tool updates here.


Installing the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool


The first step is to download the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool on your local machine. Begin by downloading the zip file for the Deployment Tool. If not already signed in, you will be prompted to sign into your ArcGIS account before downloading.



Click the ArcGISSolutionDeploymentTool.zip file to being download.



With the zip file downloaded, right click to extract all contents from the zip file.



Once extracted, double click to open the “ArcGISSolutionDeploymentTool” folder, then double click “SolutionDeployment” to begin installation.



Confirm the Add-in file installation by clicking “Install Add-In”. Click “OK” on the following message stating “Installation succeeded”.



Now that we’ve installed the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment ArcGIS Pro Add-in, it’s time to deploy our first Solution.
