I am currently doing the below

 

from arcgis.gis import GIS
import arcgis
gis = GIS('https://xxxx.maps.arcgis.com', agol_username, agol_password)

 

 

But I do not want to hard code the Username and Password in the script

Can I do something like point to an SDE connection?

I want a way to HIDE the credentials

 

from arcgis.gis import GIS
import arcgis
gis = GIS('https://xxxx.maps.arcgis.com', '\\DatabaseConnections\conectionfile.sde)

 

Or add in a workspace for this?

 

arcpy.env.workspace = "C:\\Users\\GIS_projects\\Python\\Test@EDIT.sde"

One way, If you are running on a machine with Pro installed, and have logged into Pro within the last two weeks with the user credential that you want to pass, you can use:

 

gis = GIS("home")

 

This will run using the credentials of the last user to log into Pro under that profile.

I actually have a scheduled task that opens Pro and closes it every 10 days just to keep the credentials "active".

Its on a server and no real direct access to remote on... so not sure of who credentials will be sitting there when I looks

@kapalczynski  I piecemeal solutions from different sources; you might want to check them out. 

 

 

  • I also would like to add that to set a password using keyring I ran Python Interactive Terminal (C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\Scripts\propy.bat) and followed the instructions on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLMhq3c_YQk.

This is what I came up with: 

 

import keyring
from arcgis.gis import GIS
from arcgis.gis.server import Server

# Specify the name of the profile
profile_name = "GIS_Admin"  # Replace with your profile name

# Get username and password stored in keyring

credentials = keyring.get_credential("keyring_portaladmin", username=None)
vusername = credentials.username
vpassword = credentials.password

# Connect to the ArcGIS Portal using the specified profile
gis = GIS(url="https://your.domain.com", username=vusername, password=vpassword,profile=profile_name)

# Check if the connection is successful
if gis:
    print("Connected to ArcGIS Portal as '{}'.".format(gis.properties.user.username))
else:
    print("Failed to connect to ArcGIS Portal.")
