Create Vector Tile Package Different Results in ArcGIS Pro and Standalone Python Script

I have a script which creates a vector tile package.  I am receiving the error: ERROR 001856: Cached scale doesn't match tiling scheme only when I run the tool from a standalone Python script.  I use the same parameters in the GUI of ArcGIS Pro and the tool works fine.  Is this an ArcPy bug?  If I don't use a min and max scaling the tool runs successfully but takes forever due to the size of the dataset.

Here is my script:

from arcgis.gis import GIS
import os
import arcpy



#set environment settings
gis = GIS("myportal")
arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True
outputPath = r"\\myOutPath\"
arcpy.env.parallelProcessingFactor = "66%"


# Loop through the project, find all the maps, and
#   create a vector tile package for each map,
#   using the same name as the map
p = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject(r"\\CPVektrTile.aprx")
for m in p.listMaps():
    print("Indexing " + m.name)
    arcpy.CreateVectorTileIndex_management(m, outputPath + m.name + '.shp', "ONLINE", "", 10000)
    print("Packaging " + m.name)
    arcpy.management.CreateVectorTilePackage(m, outputPath + m.name + '.vtpk', "ONLINE", "", "INDEXED", 100000, 3000, r"\\CPAreas.shp")

print ("Adding VTPK to Test Portal")
vtpk_item = gis.content.add({}, data=outputPath + m.name + '.vtpk', folder='packages', overwrite=True)

print ("Publishing & Overwriting VTPK to Test Portal")
vtpk_layer = vtpk_item.publish(overwrite=True)
vtpk_layer.share(groups="SCG - Cathodic Protection")

Screenshot of successful run from geoprocessing tool in ArcGIS Pro:

Hey Geoffrey,

Were you ever able to figure this out? I am having this issue as well. I would like to be able to set the min and max scales in Arcpy due to the size of my dataset, but am seeing this same error. I have a large number of layers and would really like to script it. Thanks!

Hi Ethan,

I don't remember what my solution was with this, a colleague has since

taken over the project. I will take a look at her code and get back to you.

Thanks, no worries if you cannot find it!

Hi Ethan, 

Here is the refactored code.  It looks like the script gets the map properties.  Hope it helps.

That makes sense, and is a good idea. Thanks for this!

Thanks for following up with on your original comment. I am going to be attempting to do something similar and spent some time formatting the code as I tried to follow it. 

Here it is. I think I got the indentations right... 

if anyone notices errors let us know.

I assume there is a way to update the vtpk source in portal.

Did you get this script to work? I've tried, but keep getting the 'Please provide parameter for config file'  message. Where do you plug in your project?

We don't use vector tiles very often in web maps because they won't show up in legends. I do use vector tiles for contour lines and some other things with tons of geometry. Which don't need to be updated, so I don't need to automate it. 

the config part is something I am trying to use now. You set parameters in a text file and get them out. So you need to create one. I am guess this one uses json.
