I have created a displacement boundary condition with the following:

analysis=ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Analyses[0] # refer to analysis
my_disp=analysis.AddDisplacement() # add displacement boundary condition
my_disp.Location=ExtAPI.DataModel.GetObjectsByName("MyNamedSelection")[0] # scope boundary condition to named selection called "MyNamedSelection"
my_disp.XComponent.Inputs[0].DiscreteValues=[Quantity('0[s]'),Quantity('1[s]'),Quantity('2[s]'),Quantity('3[s]')] # define input values for tabular data
my_disp.XComponent.Output.DiscreteValues=[Quantity('0[mm]'),Quantity('1[mm]'),Quantity('2[mm]'),Quantity('3[mm]')] # define output values for tabular data loading

How can modify this and set the X displacement to free?

    One can use:

    my_disp.XComponent.Inputs[0].DefinitionType=VariableDefinitionType.Free
