Import code snippets


The import operation adds code snippets from an input file to a notebook code snippet library. This operation can either add only the code snippets that do not currently exist in the library or overwrite all code snippets in the library with the code snippets from the input file.

Request parameters



The item ID (GUID) of the notebook code snippet library where the code snippets will be imported.



A zipped file containing *.py files of code snippets.

The following is an example of the format for the *.py file:

snippet_properties = {
"notebookRuntimeName": "ArcGIS Notebook Python 3 Standard",
"lastUpdated": "",
"deprecated": False,
"name": "Check remaining credits (ArcGIS Online only)",
"description": "Checks the remaining credits of an ArcGIS Online organization. The GIS must be an administrator instance.",
"language": "Python",
"snippetLibrary": "GIS Administration",
"tags": "arcgis, agol, credits, admin",
"notebookRuntimeVersion": "9.0"

##### SNIPPET BEGIN #####
from arcgis.gis import GIS

def check_org_credits_agol(gis: GIS) -> None:
if "admin" in gis.__dict__:
credits = gis.admin.credits.credits
print(f"This ArcGIS Online organization has {credits} credits.")
print("Please connect to the ArcGIS Online organization as an administrator to check credits.")

# check_org_credits_agol(GIS)
##### SNIPPET END #####
