Question asked by EatonCountySS on Oct 13, 2020

ArcGIS Enterprise already has arcpy in it's python environment, so why does Notebook Server running on the same machine require an expensive Advanced license to use arcpy? This license seems like a redundant money-grab. Has anyone got a workaround for using arcpy in docker without paying an extortionate amount of money for the Advanced extension? It's built into Pro, but I've had trouble keeping Pro perpetually signed in. Also I'd prefer to run scripts in docker since it is more or less isolated and impervious to System Admin tinkering and Windows updates. What about Notebook on AGO? Will that be able to support arcpy and consume non-AGO-hosted services (e.g.  arcgis enterprise hosted feature services) as tool parameters?
