Does ArcGIS Pro have an ArcCatalog-like function for Folders, Databases and GIS Server Connections that I am missing? I open an ArcGIS Pro map and see the “Project” window with Folders and Databases and Toolboxes, etc. for that particular map project. But, if I want to connect to an enterprise geodatabase, I must use >Insert >Connections to add a SQL database connection and that database connection does not persist to my next map project. So I need to re-connect to my enterprise geodatabases everytime I make a new map? Also, it appears that ArcGIS Pro does not recognize and use existing *.sde and *.ags connection files. Is this true?
OK, then I will open ArcCatalog stand-alone beside ArcGIS Pro and bring data into my Pro map that way. Nope – one cannot drag & drop any kind of featureclass, shapefile or ArcGIS Server services from ArcCatalog into any place in an ArcGIS Pro map. Really?
If I am wrong about this functionality, I would certainly welcome any guidance or direction.
