Hello, My Question is: How can I create new entity types using the python api. when i create an new session object with the python api using: session = ftrack_api.Session(server_url=server_url, api_key=api_key, api_user=api_user) I can query all types using: session_types = session.types Now i am checking if all entity types our pipeline requires are present in this session using something like: session_types.get(required_entity) However if the expected entity types are NOT present -> meaning FTrack is not yet configured in the way the it needs to be for the pipeline. I want to create the missing entity types using the python api. In the GUI I would simply create new objects for each missing entity type like this: And then I would create a schema using the required objects / (entity types) and make sure that the projects are always using this schema: But I am having trouble to understand the correct way of doing so using the python api. As far as I understand the entity types are generated dynamically at the beginning of a session. The "StandardFactory" class takes care of it by creating the types specified in the existing "ProjectSchema" 's Workflow like so ? Create a new ProjectSchema? While doing so I pass in the new Entity Types I want to have created with this schema? But how can I define those new entity types? Some informatison from the docs I collected so far: " When a Session is constructed it fetches schema details from the connected server and then calls an Entity factory to create classes from those schemas. It does this by emitting a synchronous event, ftrack.api.session.construct entity-type, for each schema and expecting a class object to be returned. " http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/stable/working_with_entities.html#customising-entity-types Regarding working with Project Schema's I only found these small snippets from the docs which do NOT show how to create a new schema: http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/stable/example/project.html?highlight=schemas The information provided in the "Working with entities - Customising entity types" also links to this page "Understanding sessions - Configuring plugins" and the provided python file "cunstruct_entity_type.py" shows how to register a plugin but does not show how to actually create a new entity type. I hope someone can point me to the right direction! Thank you in advance, Lukas
Hello, i was wondering what assigning a user group to a object actually does? I don't see any connect functionality. Documentation only says it's possible but not what it does: ftrack documentation Btw. Our Producer all thought that this would assign all the task inside the object to all the users in the group or make the task available to them and they can select task from the object themselves and i actually think that's a good idea?!

Hello. When you select a shot or a task, there are six main tabs: Notes, Tasks, Versions, Links, Activities and Info. Even creating a highly restrictive user role, when you make a project visible, they have access to all the data. Is it possible to specify, via python, that only some of the tabs are visible to those users? Or hide the content of the other tabs? Thank you very much.
