I am writing a script that accesses multiple sde Database connections. I have set the script to include accessing the environment workspace:
import arcpy arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1) arcpy.env.workspace = r"Database Connections\somedb.sde" do some python stuff... arcpy.env.workspace = r"Database Connections\someOtherdb.sde"
So, I open then tool, enter my parameters and run it. When it gets to setting the workspace, I get the regular popup window to prompt me to enter my username and password to the sde database.
The problem I have it that the tool GUI runs on top of the popup. Any time I try to click on the popup window to enter my username and password, the GUI automatically pops on top again and I can't type anything.
Is there any way for me to build the GUI so that I can enter my username and password aside from using the
arcpy.CreateArcSDEConnectionFile_management function? My connection files already exist, so I don't need to create new ones. I just need to log in to it.
