ArcGIS API for Python 1.0.1 Released

Blog Post created by AMani-esristaff Employee on Feb 8, 2017

We are excited to announce the v1.0.1 of the ArcGIS API for Python which includes fixes for the bugs reported by you. You can find the list of fixes and enhancements in the release notes.


Please upgrade your package using the command

conda upgrade -c esri arcgis

If this is the first time you’re installing the Python API, use the following command:

conda install -c esri arcgis



  • The v1.0.1 version requires Python interpreter 3.5 and later. This means, it would not work with the Python installed with ArcGIS Pro 1.3. We request our Pro users to upgrade to ArcGIS Pro 1.4 and reinstall the latest arcgis package.
  • If you were using v1.0 in Python 3.4 environment, please create a new environment and install either Python 3.5x or 3.6x and then install the arcgis API.


You can create a new environment in conda using the following command: In the command below, you can give a name of your choice and specify either 3.5 or 3.6 for Python version

conda create --name my_latest_python_env python=3.5


Then activate the environment and install the package using the command below:

activate my_latest_python_env
conda install -c esri arcgis


Thank you,
ArcGIS API for Python team.
