Learn how If Feature Type Is works in ModelBuilder

Usage

  • This tool is intended for use in ModelBuilder and not in Python scripting.

  • The tool has two Boolean outputs, True and False. Based on the condition being evaluated one of the two boolean outputs is true and the other false after the tool runs. These boolean outputs have to be set as a precondition to the downstream tools for those to execute if either of the preconditions is true.
