Alter Mosaic Dataset Schema (Data Management)
Defines which editing operations non-owners have when editing an ArcSDE mosaic dataset.
This tool prevents schema-locking issues that can arise when a mosaic dataset is stored in ArcSDE. The ArcSDE owner runs this tool to create any side tables and fields that may be needed by the user. The ArcSDE owner must also grant the proper permissions to allow users to insert, update, or delete records.
This tool is only necessary when you are creating a mosaic dataset within ArcSDE and a nonowner will be editing the mosaic dataset.
Use this tool to set up a mosaic dataset that will be published as an image service allowing users to upload or edit the items. A user can only upload their data if the raster type is allowed by the mosaic dataset.
Choose the operations allowed for this mosaic dataset. If a nonowner tries to perform an operation that is not allowed, the operation will fail.
Choose the raster types allowed for this mosaic dataset. This creates the necessary fields that will be required. If a nonowner uses the Add Rasters To Mosaic Dataset and tries to use a Raster type that has not been specified by this tool, the Add Rasters To Mosaic Dataset will fail.
If you run this tool without choosing any raster types, only the additional mosaic dataset tables will be created. These tables include overview, seamline, color correction, stereo, cell size levels, status, error, and permissions.
The mosaic dataset where you will change permitted operations.
Choose the operations you want to make permissible for this mosaic dataset.
Choose all the raster types allowable for this mosaic dataset.
If you wish to use a custom raster type, then enter the path of the custom raster type file.
Editor tracking can help you maintain accountability and enforce quality-control standards. For more information about Editor Tracking, see About tracking an editor's changes to data.
If the VIEW keyword is used in the side_tables parameter, then Editor Tracking will automatically be enabled.
This is a Python sample for the AlterMosaicDatasetSchema tool.

This is a Python script sample for the AlterMosaicDatasetSchema tool.
