Does anyone know how to insert the Modify Features Clip tool into a ModelBuilder in ArcGIS Pro 3.03?

I'm wanting to cut a hole in a polygon based on another feature class, and do this for ten different cases. If I could bring in the clip discard area that intersects tool, then I could set up the links for the polygons and run the tool to create the ten holes in ten different polygons all at once.

You cannot add the Modify Feature tool to modelbuilder, it's an editing tool meant for interactive editing. The equivalent geo-processing tool that you can using in model builder to automate processing is the Erase tool. Take note this is an Advanced level licensed tool.
