In the Workflow section of the ribbon, you will find three icons: Entry Point Manager, Studio Workflow Manager, and Studio Workflows.



Entry Point Manager

An Entry Point is a software-defined place in which you would like a tool to run from. A tool can be a workflow, a geoprocessing tool, or an action such as "zoom to", "pan", "save project", etc.


Entry Points are created and saved per project. If you create an Entry Point in one project, they will not exist in in another project.


Available entry point types include:

Static - for adding a button in the interface.

oAttribute Form - Host an item in the toolbar of the Attribute Form.

oIdentify Window Extension - Defines an extension for the Identify Window.

oResults List - Host an item in the toolbar of the results list.

oRibbon - Host an item in the taskbar or ribbon of ArcGIS Pro.


Dynamic - monitors the application and is triggered when a application or row event occurs.

oApplication Events - Trigger an item when an application event has been received.

oRow Events - Trigger an item when a row event has been received.
