The TWO options to sign into the UC San Diego ArcGIS Online account will work for setting up an account and for logging on in the future.
Whenever you use Esri or ArcGIS resources, UC San Diego affiliates with a UCSD email account will want to sign in using the "Your ArcGIS organization's URL" login and the “ucsdonline” as the organization’s address URL. Your affiliation with UC San Diego’s ArcGIS Online organization gives you access to resources that are not otherwise available to someone outside of an organization.
Once you have gone through the UC San Diego SSO Login (dual authentication may be required) you should be redirected to the homepage of the UC San Diego ArcGIS Online Organization.
Note: Just because you can sign on to ArcGIS Online, does not mean you are affiliated with the UC San Diego AGO. Public accounts exist, but these accounts do not have access to all the training resources, and additional apps (Community Analyst, Business Analyst, etc.). Check the URL and ensure that you are connected to the UC San Diego Org. If you don't see the following in the URL: ucsdonline.maps.arcgis.com, you are not signed into the UC San Diego Org.
ArcGIS Online is an online, collaborative GIS that allows students, staff, faculty and other UC San Diego affiliates to use, create, publish, and share maps, scenes, apps, layers, analytics, and data using Esri's secure cloud.
