Tools that are not available in ArcGIS Pro

Some geoprocessing tools that are available in other ArcGIS Desktop applications such as 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.

    The Upgrade Spatial Reference tool is primarily used with personal geodatabase feature classes, which are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

Geometric Network


Geometric networks are a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. The capability to manage, model, and analyze network systems for water, gas, electric, telecom, sewer, storm water, and other utilities has been replaced by the Utility Network.

  • Add Edge-Edge Connectivity Rule To Geometric Network

  • Make Graph
  • Save Graph


Graphing and charting capabilities in ArcGIS Pro have been redesigned. Graphs and graph templates created in ArcMap are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

You can use the ArcPy Chart class to automate the creation of charts in ArcGIS Pro.

Additionally, you can author a layer with charts, save the layer as a layer file, and set that layer file as the Symbology property for custom script tool or model tool output parameters. When the script or model tool is run, the charts will be automatically created for the new output datasets.


Raster\Raster Catalog

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.

ArcGIS Pro includes an enhanced parcel fabric that provides a comprehensive framework for managing, editing, and sharing parcel data in ArcGIS Enterprise, including the Parcel toolbox.
