ExtendedProperty

Summary

The ExtendedProperty object provides access to properties of the extended property row associated with the job.

Discussion

Extended properties store business-specific information as part of the job that is not covered by the default job properties. Extended properties have one-to-one (1-1) cardinality and there is one set of properties associated with the job. To configure and use extended properties in your job types, you must create a new geodatabase table in the Workflow Manager Repository. Then configure Workflow Manager to recognize this table as an extension to the rest of the system tables.

Code sample

The following script gets an extended property table associated with the job and prints the name of the cells along with the value.

import arcpy

#Establish a connection to a Workflow database
conn = arcpy.wmx.Connect(r'c:\test\Workflow.jtc')

#Access a Workflow Job with extended properties
job = conn.getJob(99999)

#Get the extended properties table associated with the job
prop_table = job.getExtendedPropertyTable('wmx.extra_properties')

#Iterate over extended properties and print the cell name with values
for (name,value) in prop_table:
    print("Cell {0} = {1}" .format(name,value.data))
