Frequently asked question

Do I need to install the ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing extensions for ArcMap and ArcGIS Server?

Last Published: February 13, 2021


ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing is fully functional within ArcGIS Pro 2.6 and ArcGIS Server 10.8.1. Therefore, the ArcMap extension and the ArcGIS Server extension to support the ArcMap extension are no longer required.
  • ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing requires these software; ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Server, and the ArcGIS Location Referencing Event Editor Web App.
  • The ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing Desktop product provides the following Desktop licenses:┬áNamed User (NU), Concurrent Use (CU), or Single Use (SU); Location Referencing, Data Reviewer, Production Mapping and Workflow Manager Desktop extension licenses.
  • The ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing Server product provides the Location Referencing Server extension license.
  • New capability will only be added to ArcGIS Pro.
  • ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing can be enabled wherever ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Server are enabled by simply adding the Location Referencing license. All license types are supported.
  • Customers may be used to downloading ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing software from the ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing product group on My Esri. However, the extension software is no longer necessary because the functionality is embedded in ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Server.
