Does ArcGIS Online have a version or is it only referenced by Month/Year, which is all I see on What's new?

Is there a compatibility matrix that shows the ArcGIS Online releases with their compatible ArcGIS Desktop versions?

There is a version available indeed. Go to:


This would give you:


This information is accessible via REST API, look for Root in case you want to access this information programmatically. Check the ArcREST Python package for administering your ArcGIS Online or Portal organization; I use it daily for about half a year, couldn't be more happy about it.

I don't think there is a matrix that says "you can publish features from ArcGIS 10.2 to AGOL 3.7+" though. What we do know though, is that starting with 10.1, you can publish to ArcGIS Online (in 10.0 there was no menu File > Share As > Service). So if you are on 10.1+, you are safe, as there were no changes in the architecture starting with 10.1 except being able to consume more resources (such as ready-to-use services).

  • I'm interested in ArcMap Consuming AGOL from ArcMap 10.1, which does not work (it used to). ArcMap 10.2.1/10.3 works fine. I think we can raise minimum ArcMap version to 10.2.x, but knowing what breaks would help for planning future ArcMap AddIn releases. Oct 27, 2015 at 17:27
  • @JayCummins, I see. You have developed a custom add-in in ArcMap (Python or .NET?) and consume AGOL services within it? It's super hard to guess what could be wrong, but I am surprised to hear that 10.1 doesn't work when the 10.2.1 does. What exactly doesn't work from ArcMap 10.1? Oct 28, 2015 at 6:18
  • The Add Data From ArcGIS Online..Add isn't working in 10.1 for us. This is without the AddIn (my AddIn will see the added data as whatever ILayer, no issues there). After pressing Add, the ArcGIS window closes and there is no error shown and no data added. When a debugger is attached, I do get an error inside an Esri library. I took a screenshot, I'll post a link of the stack when I get to work. Oct 28, 2015 at 10:01
  • This may become a non-issue for us--we are 98% certain that the few remaining customers 10.1 can be upgraded to 10.2. Oct 28, 2015 at 10:04
