  • You want to use ArcMap with concurrent use licenses so we opened My Esri>Licensing>Licenses information>Authorization> They have an ArcGIS Desktop Advanced concurrent use but were using it for a person that is not more on the company so we recovered the licenses.
  • To recover the licenses we opened My Esri>Licensing>Licensing tools>Recover lost licenses and recovered the licenses successfully.
  • We authorized the licenses on the Licenses Server Manager correctly and made the connection on the ArcGIS Administrator successfully.
  • We have access to ArcMap correctly.
  • You need to provide many people with an ArcGIS Desktop license so I suggest, providing single-use licenses with an authorization file.
  • We created the authorization file on My Esti>Start Licensing> of a single-use license and extension to ArcGIS Desktop.
  • We authorized the single-use licenses on the ArcGIS Administrator correctly and have access to ArcMap.

         Be on the same domain as the application, or  Be hosted on a server that supports CORS, or. Use a proxy.

Our proxy server is written in node.js

    has its own proxy server running at for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

             Non Secure Sockets Layer runing at   


ESRI privide other version of proxy server,  such as ASP.NETJava/JSP,  PHP.  You can use as well for Arcgis Server that is not enabled for CORS.
