Hello, 

Is there an easy way to find license levels required for ArcGIS Python modules (whether the API or arcpy)? In some module documentation on the ArcGIS site, there is license requirements information available at the bottom of the page (e.g. Append), but not for all (e.g. Data Cursors). I need to be able to identify if existing python scripts will run on a newly purchased license if it's only Basic level. All of the other organization licenses are Advanced. I'm finding many of the modules used lack any licensing information in ArcGIS documentation.

Nothing in arcpy requires license levels.

Tools in ArcToolbox and the license level is noted at the bottom of each page as you have found out (eg. append).

No python modules require a specific license so they can be imported and used as you would outside of arcmap or Pro.

BTW There is no matrix, esri documents at the tool or extension level (eg Spatial Analyst, Network Analyst etc)


... sort of retired...
