Managing access to the Enterprise Admin API

ArcGIS Enterprise provides multiple ways for organizations to manage how their members access and interact with its content. One such way is by assigning members specific privileges through custom roles that include administrative privileges, such as the ability to manage an organization's security configuration. These custom roles allow organizations to delegate administrative tasks without having to assign the default administrator role to multiple members.

Only members assigned specific administrative and publisher privileges will be able to access the ArcGIS Enterprise Admin API itself. Further access to resources and operations is restricted based on the endpoints that are associated with, or required by, their role's privileges.

Note:

Members assigned the default administrator role will continue to have access to the full ArcGIS Enterprise Admin API.

Privilege based access

Members will only be able to access certain endpoints in the Enterprise Admin API based on the privileges assigned to their role. Resources and operations that are not accessible to members will be inaccessible through the UI or return errors if they are accessed through URL paths.

The table below shows which administrative privileges are authorized to access the Enterprise Admin API that can be assigned to users:

In addition to the administrative privileges listed above, users assigned the Publisher default role will also be able to access the Enterprise Administration API.

Endpoint Access

The following sections outline the access provided to each administrative privilege, as well as which endpoints are available to users assigned the Publisher role.

Note:

Users assigned the default administrator role will have access to every endpoint in the Enterprise Admin API. Endpoints only accessible to those assigned the default administrator role below will be specified below.
