Field group properties example

The following stand-alone Python script prints a report of the field group properties for a feature class:

# Import the required modules
import arcpy

# Path to the input feature class or table
fc = "C:\\MyProject\\MyDatabase.sde\\myGDB.USER1.MapleTrees"

# Print a report of the field group properties
fieldGroups = arcpy.Describe(fc).fieldGroups
for fg in fieldGroups:
    print("Field Group Name: {}\nFields: {}\nRestrictive: {}\n".format(, fg.fieldNames, fg.isEditingRestrictive))
