GIS License for Python Script

Question asked by mvolz47 on Jan 19, 2017

I am running a python script on a physical machine where a concurrent use basic GIS license has been set.  In the python script, I also tell the script to use an ArcView license.  The weird part is that the "Where Have All the Licenses Gone" license tracking application shows that the computer is using an Advanced license.


Does python have the ability to automatically upgrade the GIS license if there is a tool that requires it?


I did not think that python had this ability, so it would just throw an error if it tried to access a tool that the license did not have privileges to use.


Any help or hints on this scenario are greatly appreciated.
