Transfer field domains, subtypes and attribute rules (Environment setting)

Tools that honor the Transfer field domains, subtypes and attribute rules environment setting control the transfer of geodatabase attributes.

Usage notes

  • Transferring domain, subtypes, and attribute rules to the output of the geoprocessing operation will take more time (slower performance) than transferring only the domain and subtype codes. Only use this environment setting if domain, subtypes, and attribute rules are specifically needed in the output.
