arcgis.geoprocessing module

Users can create and share geoprocessing tools in the GIS. The arcgis.geoprocessing module lets you import geoprocessing toolboxes as native Python modules. You can call the functions available in the imported module to invoke these tools. The module also provides simple types that can be used as parameters for these tools along with native Python types.

import_toolbox

arcgis.geoprocessing.import_toolbox(url_or_item, gis=None, verbose=False)

GPService

class arcgis.geoprocessing.GPService(url, gis=None)

A geoprocessing service can contain one or more tools that use input data from a client application, process it, and return output in the form of features, maps, reports, files, or services. These tools are first authored and run in ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Desktop, typically as a custom model or script tools, before being shared to an ArcGIS Server.

property tasks

returns the GP Tasks

GPTask

class arcgis.geoprocessing.GPTask(url, parent, gis=None)

The GP Task resource represents a single task in a geoprocessing service published using ArcGIS Server. It provides basic information about the task including its name and display name. It also provides detailed information about the various input and output parameters exposed by the task.

GPJob

class arcgis.geoprocessing.GPJob(future, gptool, jobid, task_url, gis, notify=False)

Represents a Single Geoprocessing Job. The GPJob class allows for the asynchronous operation of any geoprocessing task. To request a GPJob task, the code must be called with future=True or else the operation will occur synchronously. This class is not intended for users to call directly.

Argument

Description

future

Required ccurrent.futures.Future. The async object created by the geoprocessing (GP) task.

gptool

Required Layer. The Geoprocessing Service

jobid

Required String. The unique ID of the GP Job.

task_url

Required String. The URL to the GP Task.

gis

Required GIS. The GIS connection object

notify

Optional Boolean. When set to True, a message will inform the user that the geoprocessing task has completed. The default is False.

cancel()

Attempt to cancel the call. If the call is currently being executed or finished running and cannot be cancelled then the method will return False, otherwise the call will be cancelled and the method will return True.

Returns

boolean

cancelled()

Return True if the call was successfully cancelled.

Returns

boolean

done()

Return True if the call was successfully cancelled or finished running.

Returns

boolean

property ellapse_time

Get the Ellapse Time for the Job

property messages

Returns

List

result()

Return the value returned by the call. If the call hasn’t yet completed then this method will wait.
