The County of San Diego recently upgraded to a full ArcGIS Enterprise environment and since then there has been an upswing of users accessing the Portal. Users are creating maps, applications and dashboards, and are now interested in re-organizing and moving some of the content previously stored on their internet ArcGIS Online site to the new intranet ArcGIS Portal site. Quartic staff, Andy Tangeman, along with County of San Diego GIS Analyst, Carmen Baily are tasked with this effort.
When planning the migration, administrators identified the tasks required, and identified out-of-the-box tools that could be used to make moving the content easier. Options for migrating content include Esri solutions such as ArcGIS Online Assistant, third-party solutions such as GeoJobe, and built-in ArcGIS solutions such as Portal-to-Portal collaboration groups.
The County is partially complete with their migration and is moving quickly to finalize all of their content. Migrating from the ArcGIS Online platform to the County’s new on-premisses Portal for ArcGIS is a multi-step process as it requires moving many types of items from the internet to the County’s intranet. However, the tools discussed in this article do make the process much easier to accomplish.
