Evaluation of features using Reviewer rules

Available with ArcGIS Pro Standard and Data Reviewer licenses.

Reviewer rules created in the geodatabase enable automated review of existing features in your GIS and during editing operations. Automated review is supported in the following workflows:

  • Constraint—Enforce data integrity during editing workflows by preventing the creation or modification of features that don't meet quality requirements.
  • Validation—Evaluate compliance of existing features with data quality requirements by creating an error record for each noncompliant feature.

Automated review during editing

You can assess a feature’s quality automatically during edit operations—such as insert, update, and delete—using constraint attribute rules. The specific edit operation that prompts evaluation is defined in the Triggers parameter of the rule properties.

Automated review of existing features

You can assess an existing feature’s quality using the Evaluate Rules operation in the Error Inspector pane or through the Evaluate Rules tool.

To use the Evaluate Rules operation in the Error Inspector pane, the dataset and error layers must be loaded in the ArcGIS Pro Contents pane.

Web feature layers with the Validation capability set also must be loaded in the Contents pane to be evaluated through the Error Inspector pane.

During evaluation, error features are created for each rule violation and stored in the error layers. Error features are viewed using the Error Inspector pane.
