Create Product Library (Production Mapping)
Creates a new product library in a geodatabase.
A product library is a series of tables in a geodatabase that allows multiuser environments to centralize information and behavior for cartographic and digital data production. Production business rules, documents, and spatial information are stored inside the product library, allowing an organization to enforce and standardize production. Data model information, data validation rules, geographic extents, symbology rules, and map documents can all be managed inside the product library as examples of production business rules. A product library workspace is a required input for any product library-related workflow.
The Workspace for Product Library must be a geodatabase.
Use a path to an .sde connection file if Workspace for Product Library references an enterprise geodatabase. The user credentials in the connection file must have permission to create data in the workspace.
You can use a configuration keyword for file and enterprise geodatabases. Each geodatabase type and configuration supports different configuration keywords; however, personal geodatabases do not support keywords.
To determine a product library path, browse to an item in the Product Library window, right-click it, and click Copy As Path. The product library path will be placed on the clipboard. You can paste it into any parameter that requires a product library path.
The workspace that will store the product library.
Database storage or configuration keyword. The default is Defaults.
Indicates a product library type to create in the input workspace. If not set, a Production Mapping product library is created.
The following stand-alone script demonstrates how to use the CreateProductLibrary tool.
