What's new in ArcGIS Notebook Server 11.2

ArcGIS Notebook Server 11.2 includes new enhancements, tools, and bug fixes. Notable new developments are described below.

New at 11.2

System limits API

The ArcGIS Portal Administrator API now allows you to set limits for various functions within your portal organization. With these limits, you can set the maximum number of active scheduled notebook tasks that a member can own and the maximum total number of active scheduled notebook tasks that can be created by all members within your organization.

See the Limits (system) documentation for more information.

See the Update (system limits) documentation for more information.

Notebook home page updates

The UI elements of the Notebooks home page have been updated at the release of 11.2. A new Manage button has been added that provides a drop-down menu with options for the Manage Notebooks window, a new Manage tasks window (for members with the Schedule notebooks privilege), and ArcGIS Notebook Server Manager (for administrators).

Manage notebook tasks

The Notebooks homepage now includes a Manage tasks window that allows users with the Schedule notebook privilege to view and mange their notebook tasks. Additionally, Administrators can view and manage all scheduled tasks in the their organization from the Manage tasks window.

See Manage scheduled tasks for more information.

Import and export code snippets

The ArcGIS Notebook Server Administrator Directory now includes APIs for importing code snippets into a snippet library and for exporting a snippet library as *.py files.

See Import code snippets and Export code snippets for more information.

Change notice for notebook web tools

You can now share a notebook web tool to a different level than that of the level the notebook was published at. For example, a notebook web tool can be shared with the organization even while the notebook itself is not shared with the organization. To ensure that a web tool published in a previous release is able to utilize this change, overwrite the web tool.


Currently, the Create and edit notebooks privilege allows members to run web tools published from standard notebooks, the Advanced notebooks privilege allows members to run web tools published from advanced notebooks, the Run web tools privilege allows members to run all notebook web tools accessible to that member, and organization members are able to only run notebook web tools that they own. However, in the next release, the Run web tools privilege will be required for any member to run web tools that other members published from notebooks.

Web tools can now be published independently from the notebooks used to create them, as users with access to a notebook web tool no longer require access to the notebook that was used to publish that web tool.

Web tools published from a notebook now support the GPRasterDataLayer data type as input and output data.

See Geoprocessing service data types or more information.

Snapshot previews

You can now generate previews for snapshots that do not have an existing preview. Once a preview has been generated, you can preview the notebook associated with that snapshot.

See Working with existing snapshots for more information.
