ArcGIS Online and the Enforcement of HTTPS

Esri is committed to providing strong security for the ArcGIS platform by using the latest industry standards and best practices for security protocols. To meet these requirements, we are updating ArcGIS Online to enforce the use of HTTPS only starting on December 8, 2020.

This important security update is likely to affect some ArcGIS software and custom solutions. If your subscription is still set to allow the use of both HTTP and HTTPS, this update will affect you.

If you do not update your organization's settings to HTTPS only prior to December 8, 2020, you will not be able to access your HTTP resources.

Who Is Affected?

Users of most ArcGIS software or custom solutions using Esri technology may be affected by this planned enforcement of HTTPS only. If you acquired your ArcGIS Online subscription before September 2018 and your subscription is still set to allow both HTTP and HTTPS use, you will need to take action for continued access to your resources.

What Do I Need to Do?

To ensure uninterrupted access to resources, you need to review your organization's settings to make sure HTTPS only is enabled. This can be done at your earliest convenience but before December 8, 2020.
