ArcGIS Identity

To create and share Geocortex Inline views, you require an ArcGIS identity—either in ArcGIS Online (AGOL) or your enterprise Portal for ArcGIS. If Portal for ArcGIS is used, administrator privileges are required.

Supported Browsers and Viewers

Geocortex Inline Designer runs in the user's browser using an ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS identity and supports the following browsers:


Geocortex Inline views run in host web map viewer applications.

For optimal performance, we recommend that users access Geocortex Inline on devices with a minimum resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels.

To run views, the browser should meet the host application's browser requirements:

Supported Versions of Portal for ArcGIS

Geocortex Inline works with Portal for ArcGIS 10.5+.

You can use Portal for ArcGIS 10.5 to access Geocortex Inline Designer and store workflows. However, you cannot host views in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) in Portal for ArcGIS 10.5 apps, because version 10.5 does not support custom widgets. Custom widgets are only supported in version 10.5.1 and later.


If Portal for ArcGIS is secured using Windows Integrated Security and anonymous access to the Portal is disabled in IIS, you must install the Geocortex Web Adaptor Extensions to allow Geocortex Inline to communicate with Portal for ArcGIS.

Port Requirements

Geocortex Inline does not expose any ports, so you do not need to adjust your firewall settings. Geocortex Inline (including the Designer) relies on the ports that IIS uses (ports 80 and 443 by default).

Licensing Requirements

Geocortex Licensing

Geocortex Inline is licensed software. If you do not have a valid license, your views will show a licensing message when they run.

Licensing is based on the number of ArcGIS identities (named users for ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS) that your organization has.

To obtain a license, contact Customer Service at

Esri Licensing

Geocortex Inline is designed to consume and display content from a variety of Esri software; the Esri licenses required to author and publish content are available from your Esri distributor.

Inline uses the modern ArcGIS pattern and ArcGIS Identities to author and access applications. You must have at least a Creator user type (formerly, a Level 2 user) or a GIS Professional user type to create content in Inline. An Esri portal (ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS Enterprise) and the ArcGIS Identities themselves are also available from your Esri distributor.

Cookie Requirements

Geocortex Inline does not use cookies.

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) Requirements

By default, ArcGIS portals (including ArcGIS Online) allow cross-domain requests using Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).

If your portal has the default Organization | Settings | Security | Allow Origins settings, you do not need to do anything.

However, if you have modified the Organization | Settings | Security | Allow Origins settings from the defaults, you must configure those settings and add the Geocortex Inline Designer as an allowed origin.

For details, see Restrict cross-domain requests to your portal.
