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 wait=True.

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?

def Get_AGOL_Data_All2(itemID):
""" PARAMETERS: itemID (str) = Ther Portal itemID of the feature service to download.
RETURNS: None

   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
   NOTE: """
  


  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()')
   arcpy.Rename_management(os.path.join(r"D:\temp", zip_tar.filelist[0].filename.split("/")[0]),"DamageReports.gdb")
   return

Looks to me like the default for "wait' is True, so you really shouldn't need it. Documentation says it's a Boolean, so I'd drop the quotes around True.

item.export (..., wait = True, ...)
