I am trying to create an attribute index in a feature class in FME 2011. I couldn't find any trasnformer that does it. So I'm thinking may be I can use "PythonCaller" transformer to call "Add Attribute Index" geoprocessing method from ArcGIS. Is it possible?
Here's the syntax I copied from ArcGIS Help menu:
arcpy.AddIndex_management ("counties.shp", "NAME;STATE_FIPS;CNTY_FIPS", "#", "NON_UNIQUE", "NON_ASCENDING")
Thank you in advance.
Thank you Mark and blah238. So, I intalled FME2012 on my machine and used python26.dll as my custon python interpreter and copied Mark's code. For Entry point, I entered the name of the class "MyIndexingScript". I'm getting the following error:
Python Exception : Object: Error in executing tool Error encountered while calling method `input' PythonFactory failed to process feature
import fmeobjects import arcpy class MyIndexingScript(object): def __init__(self): self.featureList =  def input(self,feature): self.featureList.append(feature) arcpy.AddIndex_management (self, "YORK_PARCEL_ID;PARCEL_GIS_ID", "PIndex", "UNIQUE", "ASCENDING") def close(self): self.pyoutput(feature)
