Arcpy : add description to parameter

Question asked by NicolasGIS on Dec 9, 2016



I am trying to publish a toolbox with Arcpy and I cannot as when creating sddraft, I received an error stating :

{(u'ERROR 001243: The XX/YYparameter is missing a syntax dialog explanation in the item description', 92): []}


I tried to add a description to the arcpy parameter but that does not work so my question is, how do you add a description to a tool so as to avoid this error. There is no mention of it on the help:

Defining parameters in a Python toolbox—Geoprocessing and Python | ArcGIS for Desktop 


The publishing works with ArcMap as long as I add a description manually but how to scripts that ?


Many thanks for your help,
