Create Reviewer Session

Summary

Creates a new Reviewer session in the specified workspace.

Usage

  • The input workspace must be a Reviewer workspace. Use the Enable Data Reviewer tool to create a Reviewer workspace.

  • The input workspace must contain a current version of the Reviewer schema. If it does not, use the Enable Data Reviewer tool to upgrade the workspace.

  • The Session Template parameter allows you to copy properties from an existing Reviewer session into the new session created by this tool. Properties include the following:

    • Continue batch processing if check fails
    • Continue batch processing if default checks return error
    • Reviewer Table Properties
    • Default checks

    If you use a Session Template these parameters will be disabled:

    • Check For Duplicates
    • Do Not Store Geometry
    • Session User Name
    • Session Version

    If you want to specify the properties for your new session, do not choose a session template.

  • The Check For Duplicates parameter specifies how duplicate validation results are handled in the session. Duplicate errors are those that have matching values in the OBJECTID or IDENTIFIER, REVIEWERCODE, ORIGINTABLE, and PARAMETER fields.

Syntax

CreateReviewerSession(reviewer_workspace, session_name, {session_template}, {duplicate_checking}, {store_geometry}, {username}, {version})
ParameterExplanationData Type
reviewer_workspace

The workspace in which a new Reviewer session will be created.

Workspace
session_name

The name of the session that will be created in the Reviewer workspace.

String
session_template
(Optional)

An existing Reviewer session whose properties will be copied to the new session.

# check out a data reviewer extension license
arcpy.CheckOutExtension("datareviewer")

# path to a workspace
reviewer_gdb = "C:/SampleData/Reviewer.sde"

# Execute the Create Reviewer Session tool
arcpy.CreateReviewerSession_Reviewer(reviewer_gdb, "QC Pass 1")

# check in the data reviewer extension
arcpy.CheckInExtension("datareviewer")
CreateReviewerSession example 2 (stand-alone script)

# Date: May 2015

# Import arcpy module
import arcpy

# check out a data reviewer extension license
arcpy.CheckOutExtension("datareviewer")
