How to Install and Authorize the ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension License
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension is a powerful tool that allows you to access, integrate, and transform data from hundreds of different formats and sources. With this extension, you can create custom workflows using the FME Workbench application, or use the built-in tools in ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Enterprise to perform spatial ETL (extract, transform, and load) operations.
However, before you can use the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension, you need to install and authorize it with a valid license. In this article, we will show you how to do that step by step.
Installing the ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension is installed with three separate setups:
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Desktop
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Server
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for ArcGIS Pro
To install the Data Interoperability extension on ArcGIS Pro, you can first download the extension from My Esri or your ArcGIS Online organization. After you have completed the download you are ready to install the software, which is a separate install. You are now read to create ETL tools using the Workbench application[^1^].
Authorizing the ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension License
To enable the Data Interoperability extension in ArcGIS Pro applications, you must first authorize it with a valid license. The type of license you need depends on whether you are using a single-use or concurrent-use installation of ArcGIS Pro.
Single-use installations of the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension require an authorization file. If your ArcGIS Pro Single Use installation is not licensed to use the Data Interoperability extension, you can obtain an authorization file at the Esri Customer Care website. After you receive your authorization file, open ArcGIS Administrator. Click Authorize Now, choose the I have received an authorization file from Esri and am now ready to finish the registration process option, click Next, and click Browse to locate your saved provisioning ( .prvc) file[^1^].
ArcGIS Desktop Concurrent Use installations borrow a license from your license manager. If all licenses for the extension are currently in use by other users, you will not be able to use the extension until a license becomes available. To view your current licenses, open ArcGIS Administrator[^1^].
Enabling the Extension in ArcGIS Desktop
After the Data Interoperability extension is installed and authorized, your ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise administrator must assign a license to you. To enable the extension in ArcGIS Pro, follow these steps:
Open ArcGIS Pro and sign in with your account.
Click Project on the ribbon and click Licensing.
In the Extensions section, check the box next to Data Interoperability.
You can now use the Data Interoperability tools in ArcGIS Pro or launch the FME Workbench application from the Analysis tab[^1^].
The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension is a valuable addition to your GIS toolkit that can help you access and transform data from various sources and formats. To use this extension, you need to install and authorize it with a valid license. In this article, we showed you how to do that for both single-use and concurrent-use installations of ArcGIS Pro. We hope this guide was helpful and that you enjoy using the Data Interoperability extension. 061ffe29dd
