Using Python to create a number of features (specifically using Copy Feature on a newly created set of joined tables) that will be available in both the Catalog and the Table of Contents.


  • Using ArcGIS Pro 2.2.
  • All of the Python is run external to ArcGIS Pro.
  • The Copy Feature works and creates the feature in the Catalog. When opening the map in ArcGIS Pro the item is in the Catalog, but is not available in the Table of Contents.


Basically asking if there is a Python command / geoprocessing tool that will make a feature that exists in the Catalog also available in the Table of Contents without having to manually add it to the map.
