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.
If you are upgrading to 10.7, you need to reauthorize your software for 10.7. You can access your new authorization files in My Esri.
It is 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.
The installed documentation has been updated to make the complete ArcGIS Enterprise help available from each software component. The new documentation is equivalent to the version you'll find on the ArcGIS Enterprise website. The new documentation allows you to search across all components, and is available 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) has been updated to include the new documentation format.
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 can access ArcGIS Enterprise and its analytical engines, ArcGIS geospatial analysis libraries, and open-source analytical, statistical, and machine learning libraries.
At 10.7, ArcGIS Notebooks can run ArcGIS API for Python and the ArcPy library.
User types replace member levels as a flexible way to license capabilities and apps in ArcGIS Enterprise. User types allow organizations to allocate identity, privileges, and apps to 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 additional 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 the Create Map Tile Package or Export Map Server Cache geoprocessing tool to create a tile package in ArcGIS Pro 2.3, you can specify whether the output should be a .tpk or .tpkx file. Either file type can be used in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.
A .tpkx file has an open specification, allowing you to read and write files directly to a .tpkx file. 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 is now available as an organization-wide capability, allowing you to record where users are and where they have been. The location tracking feature service stores tracked locations as point features in the 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 uses 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 allows 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 independent of a data connection and provides mobile users control of when they are and aren't tracked.
ArcGIS Excalibur is a new web application for ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 that modernizes and enhances image-based workflows through intuitive experiences. These experiences allow you to search, discover, and work with imagery in integrated workflows. ArcGIS Excalibur introduces an imagery project, a dynamic way for you to organize resources that are required to complete an image-based task in a single location. Imagery projects include geospatial reference layers that provide context to imagery tasks and a set of tools that streamline image-based workflows.
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 contains information about the organization, such as licenses available and the number and types of members. On 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 create map areas to take maps offline. You can package data from specific areas of a web map for faster downloading for offline use inCollector for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Runtime SDK custom apps.
You can now share your Insights for ArcGIS models with collaboration participants. Sharing your model allows recipients to adjust your model's data and parameters, allowing them to explore and analyze the 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 payload is a JSON message containing event information, such when the event occurred and who triggered it, that is 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.
ArcGIS Data Store
ArcGIS REST API
ArcGIS Enterprise is now supported on Ubuntu 18.04.1.
For additional details relevant to individual ArcGIS Enterprise components, see System requirements topics.
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:
