Geoprocessing Options include the following options:
- Allow geoprocessing tools to overwrite existing datasets
- Write geoprocessing operations to log file and dataset metadata
- Analyze script and model tools for ArcGIS Pro compatibility
- The script editor application to use for Python script tools or Python toolboxes
- Do not show warning when overwriting model from previous version
Allow geoprocessing tools to overwrite existing datasets
The Allow geoprocessing tools to overwrite existing datasets check box controls whether geoprocessing tools can overwrite any existing data, layers, or files when run. When it is checked (default), a warning is displayed for any output parameter referencing existing data, but the tool can execute and overwrite the output dataset. When it is not checked, an error is displayed, preventing you from executing the tool and overwriting the existing data.
Write geoprocessing operations to log file and dataset metadata
The Write geoprocessing operations to log file and dataset metadata check box controls whether information about geoprocessing operations is written to an external log file and dataset metadata. The log file is an .xml document stored in the location %APPDATA%\ESRI\ArcGISPro\ArcToolbox\History. The Geoprocessing History section of dataset metadata can be viewed in the FGDC metadata style.
Analyze script and model tools for ArcGIS Pro compatibility
The Analyze script and model tools for ArcGIS Pro compatibility check box controls whether script and model tools are run through a compatibility-checking routine. When it is checked (the default is unchecked), model and script tools will be checked for compatibility with ArcGIS Pro to ensure the tool can run successfully. If the model or script tool contains reference to a data format or tool that is no longer supported, an error message will return immediately after running the tool.
You can use the Analyze Tools For Pro geoprocessing tool to manually perform the same compatibility check.
The Script Editor determines which application or Python IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is used to edit Python script tools or Python toolboxes. When you right-click a script tool or Python toolbox and select Edit, this application will open.
Do not show warning when overwriting model from previous version
When you edit a model created in a different ArcGIS Desktop application within ArcGIS Pro, the model is upgraded automatically to a Pro version when you save the model. In this scenario a warning message is displayed which allows you to continue overwriting the model or cancel. This option allows you to disable the warning message.
