Various ArcGIS modules can be used with the Jupyter Notebook application installed with ArcGIS Pro, and a folder location is automatically created to store the notebooks. However, the following error message is returned when creating a new notebook using the default location created in the C drive of the machine.
Error: Creating Notebook Failed An error occurred while creating a new notebook. Permission denied: <notebook_name>.ipynb
The following are possible causes:
If the read or write permissions of the default folder is restricted, either start Jupyter Notebook in a different folder, or request the admin to create a new Python environment clone for non-admin users.
Start the Jupyter Notebook in a different folder
In the Python Command Prompt, replace the file path with a different folder containing the appropriate read or write permissions.
cd [folder location]
Request the admin of the machine to create a new Python environment clone for non-admin users
Non-admin users do not have the required permissions to clone a Python environment, only admins can do this. Refer to How To: Clone a Python environment with the Python Command Prompt for detailed steps.
If the error occurred during an installation of ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Python Package Manager, follow the steps described below to resolve the issue.
Note: Installation of ArcGIS Pro includes the installation of ArcGIS Python Package Manager. If the ArcGIS Python Package Manager is not installed during the ArcGIS Pro installation, manually install the package manager. Refer to ArcGIS API for Python: Install using ArcGIS Pro Python Package Manager for detailed steps.
