Hello friends:

My question is: In the Python API, how do I get a collection of Operational Layers given a QuickCapture Project obtained in a query.

The objective is to do something with each operational layer in a QuickCapture Project Here is some code:

 

    myQCs = gis.content.search(query="type: 'QuickCapture Project'", max_items=1000) # "QuickCapture Project" guarantees a QC Project
    for aQC in myQCs:
        qcProjectItem = gis.content.get(aQC.id)

 

As you can see, I can get the QuickCapture Project as a Python object. I am hoping I can use this object to obtain the operational layers. Unfortunately this is as far as the breadcrumbs lead. 

Notably: '

qcProjectItem.get_data()

returns an empty object {}.

Here's hoping you can help.

Hi @Dirk_Vandervoort 

Try out the following. Note: This was performed in a Notebook in ArcGIS Pro 3.2, with API version 2.2.0.1.

 

from arcgis.gis import GIS
import json

## connect to agol
agol = GIS("home")

## get QC item
qcap_item = agol.content.get("ITEM_ID")

## You dont need to run this but look for qc.project.json file in list returned.
for resource in qcap_item.resources.list():
    print(resource)

## get json
qcap_json = qcap_item.resources.get("qc.project.json")

## print json
print(json.dumps(qcap_json, indent=4))
## or just get dataSources
print(json.dumps(qcap_json["dataSources"], indent=4))
