how do i export the results of the search to excel? In the export i would want username, modified date, created date and view count
from arcgis.gis import GIS
portal = "https://xxxxx"
gis = GIS(portal, "username", "password", verify_cert=False)
items = gis.content.search(query="owner: s*",item_type='', sort_field="numViews", sort_order= "asc", max_items=5000, outside_org=False)
for item in items:
Hi Louis K.
Here's the script that does what you are after:
from arcgis.gis import GIS from arcgis.features import SpatialDataFrame import pandas as pd gis = GIS(portal, "username", "password", verify_cert=False) print("Connected") search_result = gis.content.search(query="owner: s*", item_type="Feature Service", sort_field="numViews", sort_order="asc", max_items=5000) df_list =  for item in search_result: items = item.items() df = pd.DataFrame.from_dict(items) dfTransposed = df.T dfTransposed.columns = dfTransposed.iloc dfTransposed = dfTransposed[1:] dfTransposed = dfTransposed.set_index('name', inplace=False) dfTransposed = dfTransposed[["owner", "created", "modified", "numViews"]] df_list.append(dfTransposed) merged_df = pd.concat(df_list) # export to excel merged_df.to_excel(r"Path to output.xlsx")
Just input your destination path for the excel output to the script.
Is there a way to convert the date format (e.g. 1570463334131) to more readable when exporting into excel file?
I believe this can be done by python DateTime object converting timestamp to date format.
The function below does the trick:
import datetime def modifiedTime(index, dataframe): ts = dataframe.iloc[index].created/1000 convertedTime = datetime.datetime.utcfromtimestamp(ts).strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') return convertedTime
This can be included in the for loop to convert the unix time. This is for the 'created' column.
Same can be applied to the 'modified' column too.
Thanks, Mehdi Pira! I am no expert at ArcGIS API for Python. Forgive me for silly question. Can you confirm where exactly I need to insert this function in the for loop and how I can get the updated date printed in the excel file? Thank you so much for your help..
I am struggling to make the table actually display the dates in the proper format using your code. I'm new to python coding and still learning. How would you take the output of the above code and place it into the code for the output table?
