Scripting Picture Exports from Survey123 Feature Class

Question asked by rachael_hurd on May 12, 2017

I am a SUPER newbie to the python side of the ArcGIS stuff so I was wondering if anyone could help me out with how to modify the script here: How To: Batch export attachments from a feature class 

 

In order to match the attachment based on its rel_globalid back to the globalid in the feature class and return an associated attribute ie 'site name'

 

I found this great article over here: arcpy - Export Attachments for Arcgis Collector - Naming - Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange 

 

Which seems to indicate it is possible to pull a field value from another table based on the key field between the two in python.

 

So the feature class would have the following fields:

globalid

site_name

(survey info, etc.)

 

The attachment table has:

rel_globalid

att_name

data

 

And in the end I would like the script to ask for 

Parameters

   Attachment Table 

   Output Location

   Feature Class (Surveys)

 

And the output files to be:

(site_name)_(att_name)_ATT1

(site_name)_(att_name)_ATT2

(site_name)_(att_name)_ATT3

etc.

 

I feel like I am pretty close but I am totally new to python so I am hoping someone here can help me tune up the scripting!
