I'm using the ArcGIS API for Python to export a feature service to a FGDB and then download it. My problem is that the export function appears to be asynchronous even though I set
The returned item from
gis.item.export() has a jobid so this shouldn't be a problem if I could poll the service for job status but I don't see a URL to do this.
Without a synchronous export or a job status I am user
time.sleep(60) to slow things down but that not exactly ideal
So how do I get my export to execute synchronously, or how do I query the job status?
""" PARAMETERS: itemID (str) = Ther Portal itemID of the feature service to download.
FUNCTION: Uses the arcgis api for python library to connect to Portal and copy a feature service to a
FGDB. Portal returns a zipped file which then has to be unzipped and the contents moved to the staging location
print ('Starting Get_AGOL_Data_All()')
# #anon_gis = GIS()
mygis = GIS(username="userid",password="****")
service = mygis.content.get(itemID)
itemDesc = service.export(title="DamageReports", export_format= 'File Geodatabase', parameters=None, wait='True')
time.sleep(60) fgdb = mygis.content.get(itemDesc['exportItemId'])
fgdb.download(r"D:\temp") with zipfile.ZipFile(os.path.join( r"D:\temp" , fgdb.name),'r') as zip_tar:
zip_tar.extractall(r"D:\temp") print ('Finished Get_AGOL_Data_All()')
