I am trying to update a group layer title using arcpy. The code throws no errors and the group layer metadata has read & write permissions. For some reason the metadata of the layer is not actually being updated. Any help / suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks!
way down, under save() in
Metadata—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation
For items stored in a project, metadata changes aren't truly saved until the project is saved; if the project is closed without saving, the changes you made to the map's metadata will be lost.
