Known issues

This section lists known limitations by functional area of ArcGIS Pro. Software developers are working to fix these issues in future versions of the software.


  • Drone2Map authorization does not update the FEATURE ACT entry in service.txt. The update is necessary because the signature for each feature in a certificate license file is encrypted to that binding value. Any change to the binding value causes the signature check to break. In this case, the authorization wizard updates the binding value "ANY" to the Mac Address but does not update the feature causing it to become invalid. ArcGIS Pro checks for this feature when attempting to consume ArcGIS Pro concurrent use licenses from the License Manager. It determines the feature is invalid and backs out. You will encounter the following:
    • If switching to the Concurrent Use Licensing option from another licensing option, the Error switching license manager! error appears.
    • If ArcGIS Pro was previously configured to use the Concurrent Pro licenses from the License Manager, it will start but it will not allow you to select an extension.


  • When sharing a web layer with a pop-up that is configured to include an image sourced from an attachment, the image is dropped from the web layer.
  • When using the ArcPy mapping method CreateWebLayerSDDraft, metadata and folder options are not honored. To specify an existing folder, use the new sharing module instead.
  • Overriding a service name in the Upload Service Definition geoprocessing tool only modifies the service item's title. It does not modify the service name.
  • The staging_version parameter is only available through the Python API for StageService. This parameter is required when staging a feature, tile, or imagery layer for ArcGIS Enterprise.
  • Labels are not maintained when sharing or overwriting a web feature layer to ArcGIS Online using Python.
  • Referencing registered data in a Teradata database can fail or result in an empty service. Copy the registered data instead of referencing it.
  • Registered data stores that have different database connections for the publisher's machine and the server cannot be referenced when sharing to Portal for ArcGIS 10.4.1 and earlier.
  • Feature layers that reference registered data cannot have sync or export capabilities enabled when sharing to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 or earlier.
  • When sharing a web elevation layer with a mosaic dataset as an elevation source to Portal for ArcGIS 10.4 or 10.4.1, you cannot modify the minimum level of detail. This ensures caching doesn't occur past the minimum visibility.
  • The WGS84 Geographic Coordinate System Version 2 tiling scheme should only be used with data in the WGS84 spatial reference when caching a web elevation layer on the server.
  • When connected to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5using basic authentication, the portal must have the enableRemoteTokenUserValidation property enabled to switch between users.

Mapping and visualization


  • Measure does not work with maps that do not have a coordinate system.
  • You cannot specify a selection symbol per layer. If you import a map with a selection symbol set for a layer, the main color is extracted from the symbol and set as the selection color for that layer.
  • The view extent can change slightly when zooming to a bookmark, or exporting an image or layout, from a scene in isometric view mode.
  • Stream layers continue to draw even when the map or scene is paused.
  • After running the Define Projection tool, the map may require a datum transformation. This is not set automatically.
  • A pop-up can identify multiple results when you drag a box using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl. The pop-up will not return results, however, if your layer has its selectability turned off or the layer does not contain the OBJECTID field. Single click still works to identify results regardless of the selectability settings. To check whether a layer is set to be selectable, click the List By Selection view for the Contents pane to see if it's checked on or not.

Coordinate systems

  • The ArcGIS Coordinate Systems Data setup installs files that are required for some horizontal and geographic transformations and all file-based vertical transformations. In ArcGIS Pro 2.0, the setup had two options (per-machine and per-user), which were installed in different locations for each option. Starting with the ArcGIS Pro 2.1 release, the options are split into two separate setup packages. When you install the ArcGIS Coordinate Systems Data setup, you are not warned to remove a previously installed setup. This is okay, the setup does not need to be removed. If you're using the per-machine setup, it can be used for ArcMap or Server for Windows. If you previously installed the per-user setup, you will be warned to uninstall it before installing the latest version for ArcGIS Pro.

Symbols and symbology

  • Rendering may vary unexpectedly for the same symbol drawn in 2D and 3D contexts. See Unsupported symbol drawing for more information.
  • Custom geometric effects are stripped from symbols when they're converted from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro. There is no indication that this has occurred, and symbol geometry logic may be disrupted.
  • In 3D layers, the Randomness symbol property marker symbol layers in a polygon symbol cannot be connected to a data attribute.
  • Heat map symbology for point feature layers in a scene is drawn using real-world units. If you switch to a different symbology method, new symbols also draw in real-world units, possibly rendering them so small that they are difficult to see. To change this setting, right-click the layer in the Contents pane and click Properties. On the Layer Properties dialog box, click the Display tab and uncheck Display 3D symbols in real-world units.
  • The color scheme applied to a layer symbolized as a heat map may appear differently when the map is shared to ArcGIS Online.
  • Dot density dot placement in polygons where the mask coincides with the polygon boundary may show dots at the coincident boundary.
  • Values less than 1 are excluded from the legend in the Contents pane and in a layout for layers drawn with relative-sized proportional symbology when a maximum size is specified.
  • If using the flag or pushpin symbols from the ArcGIS 3D style in a 2D map, the symbols draw offset from their true geometries. You can adjust the anchor point values of the symbol properties to resolve this issue.

Vector tiles

  • When a map layer has more than one label class, only the first label class appears in vector tiles generated from the map.


  • When you publish an annotation layer to a feature service, the visibility range from the annotation sublayers in ArcGIS Pro is not maintained. However, the visibility range from the annotation feature class annotation classes is maintained. The resulting annotation displays differently between ArcGIS Pro and the feature service when the annotation sublayer overrides the annotation class visibility ranges.

Interactive 3D analysis

  • The interactive analysis tools do not work in isometric view mode.
  • The Interactive Viewshed tool may draw red analysis bands on the visible (green) vertical faces of features, such as building multipatches and extruded polygons, when the viewshed direction is tilted up or down away from horizontal. To avoid this issue, widen the viewshed's vertical field-of-view angle, rather than rotating the view direction.
  • You cannot create a slice plane from a feature in a feature layer that is not selectable. To make a layer selectable, click on the "List by Selection" tab in the table of contents and check on the option for the layer.
  • You cannot create a slice plane from a feature in a scene layer.


  • Overlay elements cannot exceed 4000x4000 pixels. The map view and the preview window can draw overlays at different sizes. If an overlay exceeds 4,000 pixels, it will not be drawn.
  • It is recommended that you do not modify layers or map properties during the animation export process to avoid the risk of incorrect export or application hang.
  • Animation overlays do not move with the keyframe when it is copy and pasted between animations in the same project.


  • Time is not supported across linked views.


  • The application may crash when group layers containing KML data are reordered in the Contents pane.
  • A crash can occur when a network link refreshes a time-enabled KML source file.
  • Time-enabled KML in 3D does not work as expected when animated with the ArcGIS Pro time slider.
  • Remote styles are not honored in some cases.
  • Inline style elements on ground overlays are not honored.
  • Tessellated lines in 3D may draw coarsely.
  • The KML camera is not honored if it is at or below the ground surface.
  • Rotated ground overlays are not supported.
  • Some KML screen overlays are not supported.
  • Some ground overlay image formats are not supported.
  • KML scale and orientation properties are not honored on 3D model marker symbol layers.
  • KML data written with dates that represent years before '0100' is not supported.
  • KML data with incorrect XML date formats is not supported. For example, years must be represented by four digits.


Dynamic text in tables does not work when tables are using a Relate.

Manage data and geodatabases


  • Editing tools in the Modify Features pane do not update COGO attributes for COGO-enabled line features.
  • Optional project settings to enable or disable follow feature mode for linked annotation are not available with this release.

Data Reviewer

  • Reviewer batch jobs
    • Batch jobs added from a UNC path are copied into project packages when shared using the Share as a Project Package tool with the Share Outside of Organization option unchecked.
  • Reviewer rules
    • Reviewer rules are not persisted when layers are shared using the Sharing as a Layer Package tool.
  • Reviewer results
    • The Add Session context menu command is not disabled when there is an invalid Reviewer workspace connection.
    • Reviewer sessions added from a versioned geodatabase become invalid when the version is changed to the project's Database connection.
    • Column sorting in the Reviewer Results pane is not supported for keyboard accessibility.
    • The Update Results pane does not support undo or redo of edits.
    • A metadata result's corresponding data source is not automatically displayed in the Catalog view metadata panel when opened from the Reviewer Results pane.
  • Geoprocessing tools
    • The Write to Reviewer Table geoprocessing tool fails to run as a stand-alone script in Python or the command line if the parameter value for the Origin Table Name, Review Status, Subtype, Notes, Severity, or Check Title parameter is a string data type.
    • The Enable Data Reviewer geoprocessing tool's Register as Versioned parameter does not support versioning of the Reviewer tables when creating or upgrading Reviewer workspaces for PostgreSQL. To manually register the Reviewer tables as versioned, right-click each of the following tables in the Catalog pane and click Manage > Register as Versioned:
  • The Flag Missing Features tool does not support undo or redo of result creation.


  • Some items support metadata, but their metadata can't be accessed in ArcGIS Pro. For example, groups in the active portal have a description that isn't displayed in the project view. These items show the same message as other items that can't have metadata, such as tables in SQLite databases and Excel worksheets.
  • When editing metadata in the metadata view, the validation error messages displayed at the top of a page don't remain visible as you edit the item's metadata; they move out of view as you scroll down to the bottom of the page. Also, you can't click the validation error messages to get to the area of the page where there is a problem to fix.

Utility network

  • Utility networks created with ArcGIS Pro 2.2 will fail to publish to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 portals. ArcGIS Pro 2.2 can be used to publish utility networks created using ArcGIS Pro 2.1 to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 portals. Existing utility networks should not be upgraded to ArcGIS Pro 2.2, unless sharing to an ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1 portal.
  • Associations cannot be created when accessing a utility network that is not upgraded to match the ArcGIS Pro 2.2 client. Review the general section of the Network Properties tab for the utility network layer properties to see if the Utility Network Release is 2. If not, upgrade the utility network to match the ArcGIS Pro release.
  • Adding the seventh tier fails for hierarchical domain networks due to the creation of a duplicate index name.
  • Using the Add Rule tool fails for rule types of containment or structural attachment when using a To Asset Type of ALL.
  • A connected trace with a barrier condition using the 'Is subnetwork controller' network attribute will not correctly stop a trace depending on the initial entry point of the feature with terminals.
  • When the workspace is set to a historical moment, you will not be able to perform any edits because data from historical moments are read-only. The editing tools are blocked when in a historical moment, but some geoprocessing tools that modify the utility network, such as validate topology, update subnetworks, modify subnetwork controllers and modify terminal paths, are not blocked but should be.
  • Split operations against network features may result in the Asset type values being altered. This can occur if the attribute domain assigned to the Asset type field has a split policy of default (use the default value for the field or subtype). Attribute domains assigned to the Asset type field should always have a duplicate split policy. There is currently no logic to block attribute domains that have a default split policy from being assigned to the Asset type field.
  • When importing attribute rules, the utility network does not currently validate and verify the Arcade expression that is being imported for correctness.
  • The function synthesizeAssociationGeometries is not 3D aware. A 3D envelope can be defined outside the z-axis range of geometries, yet return those geometries despite the difference in z-values. The synthesizeAssociationGeometries function does not support containment and maximum counts greater than 1,000.
  • When performing a propagation trace, barrier features are not returned despite specifying the option to return barriers. This causes incorrect results while updating subnetworks, especially with boundary devices.
  • Adding a tier will fail if any of the utility network feature classes contain data. Most commonly, tiers are added when no data is present, but some workflows might have data present while adding a tier.
  • Sometimes validating network topology will result in the process timing out. The error message will read, "Validate Network Topology - Edit operation failed. The server took too long to answer. The client has timed out. (status code 28)." Although the client has timed out, the process will continue to run on the server for up to 10 minutes.
  • In some workflows, it might be possible to end up with a version that is locked for every user, even the version owner. This workflow generally follows the pattern of creating a new version in a map, making some edits, and saving those edits. Next, a new project and map is opened to the same version created in the previous session. You may encounter a locked version.
  • When validating the network topology in ArcGIS Pro using the command on the Data tab, the client may time out if the validation takes more then 60 seconds. This occurs when executed using the command from the Utility Network Data tab on the ribbon.
  • Some functional issues and limitations arise if multiple utility networks are added to a map. Tools such as Trace Locations and Modify Associations cannot operate on the second utility network in a map.
  • The addition of a utility network layer to a map with another utility network layer with the same version is not blocked.
  • Appending data into a utility network (with the network topology enabled or disabled) should be detecting features that are added outside the extent of the utility network and fail.
  • When you attempt to remove a subtype on a utility network feature class which is required for the utility network, an error number of '999999' is given.
  • The utility network will allow you to create multiple asset group names with the same value for a feature class. This should be blocked, but isn't.
  • When you run Export Subnetworks, the Subnetworks table should be refreshed.
  • Deleting an asset type that has a rule assigned to it causes the Export Rules tool to fail with a '999999' error instead of a more informative error.
  • Importing an XML workspace fails against an XML workspace from a utility network created with the Export XML Workspace tool.
  • When you run the Validate Topology tool, the table view for errors doesn't refresh.
  • It's not yet possible to publish a trace as a geoprocessing service.
  • Some uncommon workflows can result in the utility network resulting in a state of mixed versions. The utility network layer may point to the default version while the utility network feature classes may point to a named version.
  • The execution of the Create Utility Network tool checks for the privilege Publish server-based layers but not the additional permission of Create, update, and delete. Also, this tool does not check for the portal to be an ArcGIS Enterprise portal and should not allow execution if the active portal is ArcGIS Online. Also, this tool does not check if the federated server is at version 10.6.
  • When you change a version, the trace locations are not cleared.
  • A trace error is not returned if a subnetwork trace discovers both a source and sink in a subnetwork.

Analysis and geoprocessing

Cartography toolbox

The Smooth Polygon geoprocessing tool respects the Cartographic Partitions environment setting, but you cannot set this environment setting from the tool itself. There are two options to work around this. Either set the environment setting at the application level before you run the tool, or run the tool in Python.

Network Analyst

  • Network datasets cannot be created from scratch using ArcGIS Pro. However, if you have an existing network dataset template, use the Create Network Dataset From Template geoprocessing tool to create a network dataset with the schema contained in the input template file. The newly created network dataset will need to be built using the Build Network geoprocessing tool.
  • arcpy.da.Describe does not return all properties for network datasets or network analysis layers. Use arcpy.Describe instead.


Workflow Manager

  • When a .mapx file is opened from a portal, the sign in page for the portal appears even if the .mapx file is public.
  • When a .pagx file is opened from a portal and two or more maps associated with the .pagx file are opened and edited, an AOI edit restriction message appears.
  • When you update the data workspace login, the login is not applied immediately. You must restart ArcGIS Pro for your updated credentials to take effect.
