I have multiple GDBs with tons of FDS and I need to determine if they have editor tracking enabled (got that part), and if they dont I need to Know the following :
Case 1: Does the FC have the old default fields: ET_CREATOR.... ect
Case 2: Does the FC have the new default fields: created_user... ect
Case 3: Does the FC have both sets of default fields.
Case 4: The FC doesnt have any of the Editior Tracking default fields.
For case 1 and 2 I would like to enable editor tracking on the exsisting fields.
For case 3 I would like to copy the data from the old default fields to the new default fields and remove the old fields, then enable tracking on the new fields.
For case 4 I would like to enable tracking and except the default fields.
Im thinking that tackling the Case 3 data transfer and field removal should be done first.
I have very little python expierience and would a ppreciate tons of comments.
Heres where Im at now, I will attach a copy aswell:
#Set the workspace environment
arcpy.env.workspace = r"Z:\TempTablesTBD\Test.gdb"
#Define datasets, get dataset list
datasets = arcpy.ListDatasets(feature_type='feature')
datasets = [''] + datasets if datasets is not None else 
# Define descrete arrays to pass the data to (final resting place) arrays are by default unicode
enabledList = 
notEnabledList = 
#List FC in a GDB including those in an FDS but iterating through the datasets
#for a full path name replace (ds, fc) with (arcpy.env.workspace,ds,fc)
for ds in datasets:
for fc in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(feature_dataset=ds):
fcList = os.path.join(ds, fc)
#Report if Editor Tracking is Enabled or NOT Enabled
#Create the describe object
desc = arcpy.Describe(fc)
#Create temporary lists in the loop to pass the info THROUGH, type is defined as string with str
t_enabledList = str('\t' + '-' + ds + '\n' + '\t\t' + fc)
t_notEnabledList = str('\t' + '-' + ds + '\n' + '\t\t' + fc)
#Loop to determine Editor Tracking status
#Final resting place for enabled item names (FDS/FC)
#Final resting place for non-enabled item names (FDS/FC)
#Loop through all values returned and print each separately, with out the loop they will print as a single
print ('Enabled: ')
for enable in enabledList:
print ('NOT Enabled on: ')
for notEnabled in notEnabledList:
#Script is complete
print ('\n\n\n'+'Complete :)')
