What's new in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7

ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 introduces new features, stability enhancements, and improved functionality throughout the product. For a list of issues that were fixed at 10.7, see the 10.7 Issues Addressed List.

Note:

If you are upgrading to 10.7 you will need to reauthorize your software for 10.7. You can access your new authorization files in My Esri.

It's recommended that you review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with version 10.7 and to see a list of functionality that has been deprecated.

Documentation

Esri has updated its installed documentation to make the complete ArcGIS Enterprise help available from each software component. The new documentation is equivalent to the product you'll find on the ArcGIS Enterprise website—including the ability to search across all components—from an installed directory behind your organization's firewall.

Each of the primary software components (ArcGIS Server, Portal for ArcGIS, ArcGIS Data Store, and ArcGIS Enterprise Builder) have been updated to include the new documentation format.

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder

You can now specify custom Web Adaptor names for your hosting server and ArcGIS Enterprise portal while configuring new deployments with ArcGIS Enterprise Builder. See ArcGIS Enterprise Builder installation steps for more information.

Note:

When performing upgrades with ArcGIS Enterprise Builder, you will not have the ability to change existing Web Adaptor names.

Introducing ArcGIS Notebook Server

At 10.7, the ArcGIS Notebook Server role is now available to ArcGIS Enterprise customers. ArcGIS Notebook Server uses a specialized server framework to host and run ArcGIS Notebooks, giving each notebook user their own server container to isolate their resources.

ArcGIS Notebooks provide an integrated web interface in the ArcGIS Enterprise portal to create, share, and run data science and data management scripts. Notebook authors get access to ArcGIS Enterprise and its powerful analytical engines, ArcGIS geospatial analysis libraries, and popular open-source analytical, statistical, and machine learning libraries.

At 10.7, ArcGIS Notebooks can run the ArcGIS API for Python and the ArcPy library.

User types

User types replace member levels as a more flexible way to license capabilities and apps in ArcGIS Enterprise. User types allow organizations to allocate identity, privileges, and apps to better align with the needs of members. In addition to licensing your members with user types, you can also select add-on apps and app bundles for even more flexibility to meet the needs of users across your organization.

New tile package format

ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 includes a new tile package file format with the extension .tpkx. In this format, cache tiles are stored using the optimized compactv2 storage format. This format has a simplified file structure and provides better performance when accessed over network file shares and cloud store directories.

When you run geoprocessing tools (Create Map Tile Package or Export Map Server Cache) to create a tile package in ArcGIS Pro 2.3, you can specify whether the output should be .tpk or .tpkx. Either format can be used in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.

The .tpkx format has an open specification, allowing developers to read and write files directly to .tpkx. Because of this, users can now develop and deploy custom third-party solutions for tile packages.

This new format is not backward-compatible; it can only be used by ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7, ArcGIS Pro 2.3, ArcGIS Online, and ArcGIS Runtime 100.5.

Location tracking

Location tracking is now available as an organization-wide capability, providing the ability to record where users are and where they have been. The location tracking feature service stores tracked locations as point features in the scalable and highly performant spatiotemporal big data store. The tracks are secure within the location tracking service; users only see their own tracks, with additional permissions required to view the tracks of others. The tracks can be used for situational awareness and for analysis to answer questions related to where users have been.

Tracker for ArcGIS is a new product that brings location tracking to life, using the location tracking service in two new apps: the Track Viewer web app and the Tracker for ArcGIS mobile app. The Track Viewer web app enables administrators to create track views, defining who is tracked and who can view those tracks. The Tracker mobile app is optimized for tracking locations in the background, minimizing the impact on device battery. The mobile app records tracks independently of whether there is a data connection, and gives mobile users control of when they are and aren't tracked.

ArcGIS Excalibur

ArcGIS Excalibur is a new web application for ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 that modernizes and enhances image-based workflows through intuitive experiences. These experiences enable users to easily search, discover, and work with imagery in fully integrated workflows, allowing for powerful, manual-assisted image analytics and exploitation. ArcGIS Excalibur introduces the idea of an Imagery Project, a dynamic way for users to organize resources that are required to complete an image-based task in a single location. Imagery Projects include geospatial reference layers to provide users with context to their imagery task in addition to a set of tools to streamline image-based workflows in a focused manner.

For more information, see the ArcGIS Excalibur help.

Redesigned organization page

The organization page has been redesigned to help you administer your organization and find information. A new Overview tab highlights key information about the organization, such as licenses available and the number and types of members. From the Members tab, you can filter members by role and level, and disable and enable membership for multiple members at once.

Offline map areas

If you work offline, you can now take advantage of creating map areas to make it easier to take maps offline. You can package data from specific areas of a web map for faster and easier downloading for offline use inCollector for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Runtime SDK custom apps.

Shareable models

You can now share your Insights for ArcGIS models with collaboration participants. Sharing your model enables recipients to adjust your model's data and parameters, allowing them to explore and analyze their data.

Monitor portal activity

As a portal administrator, you can create and manage webhooks to monitor activity for your portal items, users, and groups. Webhooks allow applications to send other applications event-driven information through payloads—a JSON message containing event information, such when the event occurred and who triggered it—that will be sent to your specified payload URL.

ArcGIS Enterprise portal

Many new features and enhancements are available for mapping, analytics, and sharing workflows. There are also enhancements in the portal user experience, and the portal is now more responsive when you access it on smaller screens. For a detailed list of features and enhancements, see What's new in the ArcGIS Enterprise portal.

System requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise is now supported on Windows Server 2019 (64 bit) operating systems for Standard and Datacenter editions.

For additional details relevant to individual ArcGIS Enterprise components, see System requirements topics.

Cloud deployments

For geoprocessing services that are heavily used, the ArcGIS Server administrator can change the jobs directory for the service from a local folder on the ArcGIS Server site to a Microsoft Azure Blob storage container.

Tools and images you use to deploy ArcGIS Enterprise in Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure have been improved for 10.7. See the following to learn more about new and improved functionality for ArcGIS Enterprise on these platforms.
