Configure Portal for ArcGIS to work with


Portal for ArcGIS versions 10.4, 10.4.1, and 10.5 require additional configurations to connect a website with a Portal. These configurations are not required for Portal for ArcGIS 10.5.1 and newer versions, as these versions are pre-configured to connect to the website.
