Why is there less ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World content in Portal for ArcGIS compared to ArcGIS Online?

Last Published: December 4, 2020


By design, each ArcGIS Enterprise version contains a fixed subset of the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World items referencing content in ArcGIS Online. The ArcGIS Living Atlas content life cycles and updates determine the ArcGIS Living Atlas items available in Portal for ArcGIS. However, it is possible to obtain unavailable ArcGIS Living Atlas items out of the box with Portal.

ArcGIS Online users with access to ArcGIS Living Atlas can add the item as a web item to Portal using the item’s REST URL obtained from the item details page in ArcGIS Online.
