We are excited to announce the v1.2 of the ArcGIS API for Python to coincide with the Esri User Conference 2017. This is release packs a slew of new features, samples and numerous bug fixes to both the API and the samples. You can find the list of fixes and enhancements in the release notes.

Please upgrade your package using the command

conda upgrade -c esri arcgis‍‍

If this is the first time you’re installing the Python API, use the following command:

conda install -c esri arcgis‍‍


  • The v1.2 version requires Python interpreter 3.5 and later. This means, it would not work with the Python installed with ArcGIS Pro 1.3. We request our Pro users to upgrade to ArcGIS Pro 1.4 or 2.0 and reinstall the latest arcgis package.
  • If you were using v1.0 in Python 3.4 environment, please create a new environment and install either Python 3.5x or 3.6x and then install the arcgis API.

You can create a new environment in conda using the following command: In the command below, you can give a name of your choice and specify either 3.5 or 3.6 for Python version

conda create --name my_latest_python_env python=3.5‍‍

Then activate the environment and install the package using the command below:

activate my_latest_python_env
conda install -c esri arcgis‍‍‍‍‍‍

Thank you,
ArcGIS API for Python team.
