Esri Software Products Affected by TLS 1.2 Implementation

Important Updates for the ArcGIS Platform and Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Support

As part of improving ArcGIS Online security, Esri will require TLS 1.2 connections for ArcGIS Online services in February 2019. Esri software that connects to ArcGIS Online will be affected by this change. To ensure continued access to ArcGIS Online services, you must take action prior to the implementation of TLS 1.2.

You can learn more about TLS and the ArcGIS Platform on the Important Updates for the ArcGIS Platform and Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Support page.

Esri software that requires action includes ArcGIS Desktop and applications built on and extending ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Enterprise, applications built with ArcGIS Engine (ArcObjects), and partner extensions that access ArcGIS services. Refer to the list of affected and unaffected Esri software products below for more information about specific product releases.
