Update the status of results

Available with Data Reviewer license.

Reviewer results represent a potential error in your data. Results are generated in two ways:

  • Automated—Through execution of a Reviewer batch job
  • Manual—Through redlining, such as markup, by a subject matter expert

Once reviewed, results can be corrected. When a result is corrected, its life cycle phase advances to Correction, and the result is updated with information regarding who made the correction and when the correction was applied. Notes supporting how the result was handled can also be added to aid in later verification.

Once corrected, results can be verified. When a result is verified, its life cycle phase advances to Verification, and the result is updated with information regarding who made the verification and when the verification was applied. Notes supporting how the result was verified can also be added to aid in process improvement or to meet organizational documentation requirements.

Correct results

Depending on the types of Reviewer results in a session, you may need to resolve results by modifying geometries or attributes, updating metadata values, or manually reviewing sampling results. With feature and table records, you can indicate whether one or more records have been resolved and add explanatory notes. A status of Resolved means the error condition has been corrected. In special cases, a result can be marked as an exception due to unique circumstances related to that feature.

Metadata check results can also have a status of Resolved or Mark as Exception. A Resolved status means that the metadata element value has been corrected or populated as necessary. A Mark As Exception status means the metadata has not been updated and remains an exception.

Once a correction is applied, the result moves to the Correction group in the Update Results pane. The correction details also populate in the Reviewer Results pane, including who made the correction, and when, with any explanatory notes.

Note:

Results can move directly from the Correction group to the Verification group to support certain process workflows. To automatically verify a record, be sure to check the Automatically verify result check box in the Update Results pane.

Update Results with Automatically verify option

Verify results

Verification is the process of ensuring that the Reviewer results have been corrected, or reviewed, as necessary. The verification states of results are Acceptable and Unacceptable. When a result is marked as Acceptable, it means that the result has been corrected, or is correct as it is. A status of Unacceptable means that the result has not been corrected, and it is returned to the Reviewed state.

Once the verification changes are applied, the result moves to the Verification or Review group in the Update Results pane, respectively. The Verification Details for each result are also updated in the Reviewer Results pane, including who verified the result, and when, with any explanatory notes.

  1. In the Catalog pane, expand the Reviewer Results group.
  2. If necessary, right-click the Session Results group and click Add Session to add a Reviewer session to the project.
  3. Right-click the name of a Reviewer session and click Open.

    The Reviewer Results pane appears with all the results that have been stored in a session. Now you can browse the table and select a result or group of results for verification.

  4. Press Ctrl or Shift and click the row header to select individual or multiple results.
  5. Right-click the selection and click Update Results.

    The Update Results pane appears, displaying the selected results based on their life cycle phase.

    The Correction Notes text box is disabled. You can view the correction notes for a record but cannot modify them.

  6. Select one or more records in the Correction group.
  7. In the Status panel, click the Update Verification Status drop-down arrow and choose a verification status for the records.
  8. Click Apply.

If the results are given a status of Acceptable, they appear in the Verification group in the Update Results pane. If the results are given a status of Unacceptable, they are returned to the Review phase and appear in the Review group.

The Verification Details for each result are also updated in the Reviewer Results pane.

Tip:

After a record has been verified, you can revise its status. For example, if a record has been marked as Acceptable and you want to mark it as Unacceptable, you can change the status and return it to the Review phase.

Update sampling records

Sampling is the process of creating a set of features from one or more layers that can be visually inspected to ensure they are valid. The sample is created from the feature classes that have been selected to include in the sample based on what was loaded in the map. The Sampling check allows you to assign weights to feature classes, which increases or decreases the number of features included in the sample.

The initial status of results generated by the Sampling check is New, and they are in the Review phase. Once they are reviewed, they can be assigned a status of Pass or Fail and automatically verified. After all the results are verified, you can determine whether most of the sampled results passed or failed inspection.

  1. In the Catalog pane, expand the Reviewer Results group.
  2. If necessary, right-click the Session Results group and click Add Session to add a Reviewer session to the project.
  3. Right-click the name of a Reviewer session and click Open.

    The Reviewer Results pane appears with all the results that have been stored in a session. Now you can browse the table and select a result or group of results for correction.

  4. Press Ctrl or Shift and click the row header to select individual or multiple results.
  5. Right-click the selection and click Update Results.

    The Update Results pane appears, displaying the selected results based on their life cycle phase.
