    It is notoriously difficult to add data from say, Google Drive, Carto, One Drive, etc...to a Pro project, with all solutions requiring some sort of spin backwards 3 times while uttering a Gregorian chant in latin workflow. While I suspect the reason for this is that ESRI wants folks using nothing but their products as data source, but the reality is, GIS data is hosted on a variety of platforms. In this wild vision, you click on Add Data (1), select your third part option (2), then pick any of your 3rd party platforms (3, 4 and 5), all of which have well documented API's.
