Our company internet gateway rejects Python package downloading as insecure but does work with
--insecure in a conda call. This leaves non command line users stuck with the default ArcGIS Pro environment and prevents using the GUI to making clone and adding packages.
Is it possible to tell the ArcGIS Pro python package manager GUI to ignore SSL?
- For security we cannot write to Program Files and therefore cannot make environments in there
- ArcGIS Pro can write new environments to user profiles but fails through the GUI
- Using conda we can clone the default environment to our user profiles but fails unless we use
- We are told our firewall SSL inspection rejects the connection when conda and pip try to verify SSL
- We can install with conda and pip to the new environment, the files and folders are in Lib\site-packages folder, but do not appear in the conda list
So I have 2 problems but the first
- it is not local permissions but inability to download that appears to cause failure to clone becaue clone involves downloading. If ArcGIS Pro could set SSL_NO_VERIFY=1 I assume users can just use the GUI to clone environments.
- If that works I could download new packages using the ArcGIS Pro GUI, theoretically ArcGIS Pro would recognise them, and they would work. The new conda environment downloads but does not recognise what is downloaded.
