I would like to set the date format to only date and the dd.mm.yyyy format. It is possible to do that in the layer field settings under Number Format. However having a lot of layers and a lot of fields I would like to program to set all the date formats in bulk. Is that possible?
Thank you for the answer and sorry not to specify better my issue.
My Windows regional settings as set as I want and so the displaying of the dates in ArcGIS Pro is not a problem.
The problem is when I publish the data to the Portal. If no specific parameter set in ArcGIS Pro all dates are by default displayed in the US format (mm/dd/yyyy 2:00 AM). That is why I need to set all the fields and I am looking for a way to do that automatically if possible.
. .. .. ArcGIS Pro uses Python functions and the display format depends on your regional settings, rather than the underlying database's format on the system....
I wonder if it a portal issue then since Pro and python seem to have you covered for the display you want
Yes indeed its a problem of the Portal. So I need to make sure to define the format of the field in ArcGIS Pro before publishing. If I set it manually in the ArcGIS Pro, when published on the portal is in a good format. So instead of setting it manually I wonder how I can do it with arcpy or with ModelBuilder. Do you know if it is possible?
I don't do Portal.
With python you can set date formats to whatever you want.
Arcpy would wrap around what is available
Maybe the "arcgis" module ArcGIS API For Python | ArcGIS Developer
but I don't have much call to use it.
