Introduction to Administering your Portal using the ArcGIS API for Python
Administration covers all sorts of activities from identifying what content is available in a portal, who owns it, who can get access to it, creating and managing users, uploading and validating your new content, to managing services on a GIS Server.
The list of topics which come under the title of administration are many and varied.
This course will build upon your existing Python skills and knowledge of your ArcGIS Portal to provide you with the necessary skills to administer your Portal using the ArcGIS API for Python.
Continuing professional development (CPD) is an integral part of applying for and maintaining Chartered Geographer accreditation. Attendance of this course will provide the attendee with 10 CPD points. Click here to find out more
