The ArGIS processor allows to geocode full text addresses by using the ArcGIS geocoding API.

This processor can be connected with a custom ArcGIS geocoder. Please contact Opendatasoft support team if you want this configuration to be activated in your domain.

Make sure you have a paid ArcGIS account. Register an application in your ArcGIS developer dashboard.
Retrieve the authorization credentials (client ID and client secret) for the registered application from your ArcGIS account.
