Access ArcGIS Mission Responder

This workflow describes how to begin using ArcGIS Mission Responder. It assumes that you have access to ArcGIS Mission Responder but have not yet installed it on your device.

Acquire the app

ArcGIS Mission Responder is a mobile app and you'll download it onto a mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone. The device you use is determined by organizational requirements. Esri mobile apps are available through mobile app stores, but your organization may provide the app to you, via an .apk file.

Once you acquire the app files, your mobile device prompts you to install it. This should only take a few minutes.

Open the app

Upon opening the app, the splash screen displays the app title and attempts to connect to your ArcGIS account. If it cannot do so, you will be prompted to sign in with your ArcGIS account.

This prompt appears under the following circumstances:

  • This is your first time signing into the app from this device.
  • The app was updated or otherwise changed since your last sign in.
  • You signed out of the app before closing it after a previous use.

However, ArcGIS Mission Responder stores your login credentials and does not ask you to provide them every time you sign in. For security reasons, your organization may require that you sign out of the app after every use.

Sign in

If you are prompted to sign in, tapping Sign In prompts you to provide your portal URL.

Your portal URL is provided to you by your organization and reflects the URL used by ArcGIS Mission Manager. Its format is similar to

Type your portal URL and tap Continue. You are prompted to provide your ArcGIS login credentials. This login information can be your personal ArcGIS account, or it may have been generated by your organization specifically for use in ArcGIS Mission.

After entering your ArcGIS account information and tapping Sign In, you are taken to the mission list and can engage in a mission.
