ArcGIS Online and Python API releases

Blog Post created by geri_miller-esristaff Employee on Dec 7, 2018

Hi Everyone,

 

If you use the ArcGIS API for Python to script provisioning of ArcGIS licensing, please read on…

 

As you may know, yesterday there was an update to ArcGIS Online. In conjunction, there was a release of the ArcGIS API for Python, version 1.5.2, which included better support for the new user types.

 

  1. We recommend updating to version 1.5.2 of the Python API, which is now available on the Esri conda channel. Note, the developer website will NOT go live until Monday. Please take a look at the following blog for more information.

 

  1. Please note that the name of the AppStudio entitlement has changed – it used to be “AppStudio for ArcGIS Standard”. Now it is “AppStudio for ArcGIS”. The key, “appstudiostd” stays the same. Please update your scripts accordingly, if you are currently provisioning AppStudio for ArcGIS Standard. Side note, this is to reflect a change of licensing for AppStudio – moving forward, and once migrated to the new institution agreement/site license, AppStudio Basic will be available to anyone via ArcGIS Online, while AppStudio Standard will be licensed through the ArcGIS Developer Subscription only. Further information can be found here.

 

Thanks to University of Michigan, University of Minnesota and Virginia Tech for testing early and confirming the above.

 

Let us know if you have any questions.
