ArcGIS API for Python is a package included with ArcGIS Pro. However, ArcGIS API for Python is contained within a conda package distribution, and does not require any license. It can be installed outside of ArcGIS Pro. For machines that do not have ArcGIS Pro installed, such as server machines with ArcGIS Enterprise, having a stand-alone ArcGIS API for Python installed can help simplify processes.
Note: While ArcGIS API for Python is Esri supported, Anaconda Distribution is not. It is a third-party product outside of the ArcGIS Pro installation, and therefore, may fall outside the scope of standard support.
The following steps describe how to install ArcGIS API for Python without or outside of ArcGIS Pro:
Note: If the machine with ArcGIS Pro is used in an offline environment, the steps provided can be useful, especially if Anaconda Distribution is downloaded using a different machine.
Note: ArcGIS API for Python requires Python version 3.5 or later. Refer to ArcGIS API for Python: System requirements for more information.
conda install -c esri ArcGIS
