Hello,

I am working to set up editor tracking for our SDE database.  I realized that it is a huge job.  Since our tracking fields are same for all the layers in the database.  I'd like to know if there is a script or tool which can be used to do this for each dataset.  I searched and found nothing.

Please help.

Thanks

The Enable Editor Tracking tool is the one you need. Enterprise geodatabases need a connection as the data owner. Available in ArcGIS Pro 2.6+.

thanks.  i saw it but i thought it is just enable the editor tracking and nothing else.  it is just what i want.

another question,  any script to setup attribute rule?  we need to set up unique ID by database sequence and our ID filed is same for all the layers within a dataset.  I'd like to find the script which can do this for a dataset.

again thanks very much for the quick reply.

Add Attribute Rule 

I haven’t used that - there’s info in the tool documentation about database sequences and enterprise considerations.

one added note.  Enable Editor Tracking geo processing tool only works for SDE created fields.  It does not apply to customized fields.  at this moment,  it seems there is no tool for setting up editor tracking on customized fields.  so it is still a manual process at each feature class level.
