Delete Reviewer Session


Permanently deletes one or more sessions and all related records from a Reviewer workspace.

A Reviewer session is used to store and manage the results of your data analysis throughout the life cycle of an anomaly. It allows you to organize the results discovered from running batch jobs and visual inspections.


  • The Reviewer Workspace can be stored in enterprise, file, or personal geodatabases.

  • When deleting a session from an enterprise geodatabase, connect to the Reviewer Workspace using the same version used when the session was created.

  • Use the Create Reviewer Session tool to create sessions.
