The ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool is an ArcGIS Pro Add-in that allows you to browse a catalog of ArcGIS Solutions and deploy them to an ArcGIS Online organization or Portal for ArcGIS. During deployment the tool will create the items, groups, feature layers, maps, and applications that make up the ArcGIS Solution. Once deployed, the solution can be configured to meet specific needs in your organization by modifying the items created during deployment. If required, existing data can then be loaded into the new feature layers deployed to your ArcGIS organization.


The ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool requires specific technical experience and software.
