I am trying to set-up ArcPy, from ArcGIS Desktop, to be used within Jupyter Notebooks from an Anaconda Environment; yet, while this has worked on other computes, I am not able to import arcpy correctly on this new computer.

I have 64-bit geoprocessing installed along with Anaconda 3. From the Anaconda prompt, I create an environment, arcgis, with Python 2.7. I then create a file named DTBGGP64.PTH pointing to bin64, arcpy, and ArcToolbox\Scripts and save it at C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\arcgis\Lib\site-packages. From here, I install notebook ipykernel, have ipython install itself (i.e. `ipython kernelspec install-self`), and then install numpy. What am I missing?

Turns out the correct file name is not DTBGGP64.PTH as it was with other versions of ArcGIS, but arcgis-python-site-packages.pth. Hope this helps anyone looking for it.

Hi John,

As stated in the system requirements, Python 3.5 or later is required to use the ArcGIS API for Python. As arcpy which comes with ArcMap, ArcCatalog, etc. is based on Python 2.7 it is incompatible - it can only be used with the ArcGIS Pro version of arcpy.

Hi! How I solved the issue? I created a scripts using Arcpy (Arcmap 10.5) and I have jupyter (anaconda3). I am trying to import arcpy in jupyter to run the script.

How you*?

I created an environment for python 2.7 but it’s not working for me!

I misread your message because it was in the ArcGIS API for Python group! Anyway looks like you got sorted anyway.
