How can I check whether or not a feature class is versioned using python? I'm trying to register feature classes using a python script. Before I do this I need to check whether a feature class is versioned. Are there keywords that we can use in coding while looping through the feature classes? Thanks in advance for the help.

If you call the method arcpy.Describe() on your feature class - e.g. arcpy.Describe("path/to/my/feature/class"), you will get a Dataset properties object. You can then use the isVersioned property of this object to get a boolean, whether or not your dataset is versioned.

Code snippet:

import arcpy
datasetVersioned = arcpy.Describe("path/to/my/feature/class").isVersioned

Remember to use escaped backslash characters, forward slashes, or a raw string in the path
