ExtendedPropertyValue

Summary

ArcPy class that provides access to the individual cell for extended and linked properties associated with the job.

Discussion

Extended and linked 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. Linked properties have one-to-many (1-many) cardinality and there is zero or more set of properties associated with the job. Extended and linked properties are stored in a nonsystem geodatabase table in the Workflow Manager Repository.
