The HoldType object provides access to the hold types configuration element in the Workflow Manager database.
The hold types are a template for the holds used to suspend the job activity for an indefinite amount of time. The information about a hold is never deleted from the system and can be queried. A hold may be applied to a job for reasons including the following:
- Insufficient funding
- Technical problems
- Missing data
- Lack of resources
The ID of the HoldType.
The name of the HoldType.
The following script gets the hold types in the Workflow Manager database and adds a budget hold to a job.
import arcpy #Establish a connection to a Workflow database conn = arcpy.wmx.Connect(r'c:\test\Workflow.jtc') #Get a list of Hold types in Workflow database hold_types = conn.config.getHoldTypes() #Access a Workflow Job job = conn.getJob(99999) #Find the id of Budget Hold hold type and add a hold on the job for hold in hold_types: if(hold.name=='Budget Hold'): job.addHold(hold.id,comment="Insufficient funds for digitization.")
