How To: Restrict members of an organization from using Ready To Use Tools in ArcGIS Pro


Ready To Use Tools in ArcGIS Pro are geoprocessing services that use ArcGIS Online's hosted data and analysis capabilities. The Ready To Use Tools include Elevation, Hydrology and Network Analysis tools.

Members of an organization, such as interns and trainees, may not be aware that some Ready To Use Tools consume ArcGIS credits. However, the administrator of the organization can restrict members from using these tools through the settings in ArcGIS Online. This article provides these steps.

For more information on service credits, refer to ArcGIS Online: Service Credits Overview.


Only administrators can create custom roles. For more information on custom roles, refer to ArcGIS Online: Levels, roles and privileges: Custom roles.
