I need to get all the properties for a geodatabase relationshipclass. I can use a Python script to get most of the properties via the geoprocessing "Describe" but unless I'm missing something, the names of the primary and foreign key fields aren't exposed to this method.

Can someone please point me in the right direction? There has to be a way.

At 10.2.1 release, it will be possible to obtain the origin and destination class keys via python using the Describe function.

You can use:
arcpy.Describe(<relationshipclass>).OriginClassKeys  or
arcpy.Describe(<relationshipclass>).DestinationClassKeys


The result returned will look something like this:
[(u'OBJECTID', u'OriginPrimary', u''), (u'ParcelID', u'OriginForeign', u'')]
[(u'id', u'DestinationPrimary', u''), (u'RenterID', u'DestinationForeign', u'')]


Hope this helps!
