Tools that are not available in ArcGIS Pro

Some geoprocessing tools that are available in other ArcGIS Desktop applications like ArcMap are not available in ArcGIS Pro. Geoprocessing tools that process data formats that are not supported in ArcGIS Pro have been removed and cannot be used in the application, from Python, or with ModelBuilder.

Certain toolboxes have been entirely removed from ArcGIS Pro, while others may have just one or a few tools that are not available. See the listing of toolboxes and tools below for detailed information about what is not available, if it may be available at a future release, and potential alternatives for those toolboxes and tools.

Network Analyst Tools

Server

Note:

These tools, which are primarily used to set up network analysis web services, will be available in a future release of ArcGIS Pro.

ArcGIS Pro provides the same and enhanced network analysis capabilities available in the Server toolset through other tools in the Network Analyst toolbox, Ready To Use Network Analysis tools, and the interactive network analysis workflow.

Parcel Fabric Tools

The legacy Parcel Fabric for ArcMap is supported as a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. You cannot create new or edit existing Parcel Fabrics for ArcMap in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

A new and enhanced parcel management capability will be introduced in a future release of ArcGIS Pro.
