Hey there,

I am trying to get a python script working that stops all the services following this

https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000019994

I get the general idea but I am getting the error 'GIS' object has no attribute 'admin' when trying to access the servers list. We use Enterprise Logins via SAML with One identity provider.

I am running this

 

from arcgis.gis import GIS
import arcgis.gis.admin

gis = GIS("https://url.domain.ca/portal")
print("Logged in as: " + gis.properties.user.username)
print("Servers: " + gis.admin.servers.list())

 

 Which gives me:

Logged in as: TSlack@CITY
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
AttributeError: 'GIS' object has no attribute 'admin'

If I run

 

print("Logged in as: " + gis.properties.user.role)

 

it tells me im an org_admin which is correct, my user account as administrator privileges.

Any idea where I am going wrong here? Im using the latest ArcGIS Pro version with all updates. My python version output is below:

 

import sys
import matplotlib
import numpy
import scipy
print(sys.version)
print(matplotlib.__version__)
print(numpy.__version__)
print(scipy.__version__)
3.9.11 [MSC v.1931 64 bit (AMD64)]
3.4.3
1.20.1
1.6.2

 

arcgis API is version 2.0.1

The issue had to do with the fact our Enterprise is running 10.6

ESRI Support said "Our 10.6.1 Enterprise deployment built with SAML isn't maintained very well anymore as the product is in mature support. I've tried to bring it back to life but the IDP it leverages no longer exists, and I've been unable to create a new one to test this."

My main goal was getting a script to run that stopped services on Server and I was given a link to https://enterprise.arcgis.com/en/server/10.7/develop/windows/example-stop-or-start-all-services-in-a...

which I was able to modify for my purposes.

I don't have experience with SAML or One, but the code linked in your example worked for me (where I specify user name and password in the GIS constructor).  It reports that I, too, am an org_admin.  Do you get a result for the following line of code, or does it just throw an exception?

print(type(gis.admin))
# Mine shows <class 'arcgis.gis.admin.portaladmin.PortalAdminManager'>

Hey @RogerDunnGIS 

Same result.

 

print(type(gis.admin))
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
AttributeError: 'GIS' object has no attribute 'admin'

Problem with SAML/One sign is that I think it prevents me from logging in with a user account I create thats not part of the enterprise so I can't test it with a non SAML account?

In a web browser, are you able to navigate to the following URL (using your example)?:

https://url.domain.ca/portal/portaladmin

Also, if and when Python does end up resolving gis.admin, your last print statement won't work.  You can't concatenate (+) a string ("Servers:") with a list (gis.admin.servers.list()).  Rather you may want to write

print("Servers:")
for server in gis.admin.servers.list():
    print(server.name)

or something like that.  I can't remember if name is a property or not.

@RogerDunnGIS 

https://url.domain.ca/portal/portaladmin

Resolves fine and I am automatically logged in as my account.

Thanks for the correction on the python there, I still get the exception returned unfortunately.

This is a long shot, but the admin module introduced at 1.2.  What version of arcgis are you using?

print(arcgis.__version__)

The server doesn't have a .name attribute, but you can call the str() on it:

print("Servers: " + (', '.join([str(srv) for srv in gis.admin.servers.list()])))

which puts out a list like:

Servers: <Server at https://site.domain.com:6443/arcgis/admin>, <Server at https://site.domain.biz/citygis/admin>

Version is 2.0.1 and that last argument gave me the same error AttributeError: 'GIS' object has no attribute 'admin'

really strange.

Yeah, it will throw the error if .admin isn't found in the GIS module.  We stop/start ours a little differently using the admin server connection if you are interested.

I hate to say it, but we community members can only do so much.  If you've got the latest version and you're on maintenance/subscription, you should probably contact technical support, who can help you for free.  They're good at what they do and might be able to solve your issue quicker than we can.  They can also set up screen sharing and what not.  They might be aware of some of the nuances of using the GIS object with SAML and One identity.

Appreciate the help. I guess I'll do just that. I'll try to remember to update the thread with a result.
