Enable Data Reviewer

Available with Data Reviewer license.

Summary

Adds a feature dataset and tables necessary for an existing geodatabase to be considered a Reviewer workspace and store Data Reviewer results. The Reviewer workspace tables are required by ArcGIS Data Reviewer to manage Reviewer sessions.

Usage

  • This tool adds the required dataset and tables for storing Reviewer results, if they do not already exist.

  • The spatial reference of the Reviewer workspace and the data being validated must match or Reviewer geometries cannot be stored in the Reviewer workspace.

  • If this tool is run on an older version of a Reviewer workspace, the tables will be updated to the current schema.

  • A warning appears if this tool is run on a current version of the Reviewer workspace.

  • This tool can be used in conjunction with the Create Reviewer Session tool to create a new session in the Reviewer workspace.

  • If a configuration keyword is not selected for the Configuration Keyword parameter, the Output CONFIG Keyword environment setting will be used as a configuration keyword. If the environment setting does not exist, DEFAULTS will be used as the configuration keyword.

  • Versioned Reviewer workspaces created prior to ArcGIS Pro 2.1 will require a user administrative privileges to reconcile and post the Reviewer session tables and compress the enterprise geodatabase before upgrading to the latest Reviewer schema.

  • The Coordinate System parameter is ignored when upgrading a Reviewer workspace to the current version.

  • The Register as Versioned parameter is honored when upgrading a nonversioned Reviewer workspace to the current version. The parameter is ignored when upgrading a versioned Reviewer workspace to the current version and the parameter is set to false.

  • The Configuration Keyword parameter is honored when upgrading a Reviewer workspace to the current version and tables are missing. The Configuration Keyword parameter is ignored when upgrading a Reviewer workspace to the current version and all tables are present.

EnableDataReviewer(workspace, {spatial_reference}, {register_as_versioned}, {config_keyword})
ParameterExplanationData Type
workspace

The geodatabase where the Data Reviewer tables and feature dataset will be created. This can be a desktop or enterprise geodatabase.

Workspace
spatial_reference
(Optional)

The geographic or projected coordinate system of the feature classes in the Reviewer workspace. The default is GCS_WGS_1984 if no value is specified.

Spatial Reference
register_as_versioned
(Optional)

Indicates whether the feature classes and tables added to the workspace will be registered as versioned. This only applies to enterprise databases.

  • NONVERSIONEDThe feature classes and tables will not be registered as versioned after they are added to the geodatabase. This is the default.
  • VERSIONEDThe feature classes and tables will be registered as versioned after they are added to the geodatabase.
Boolean
config_keyword
(Optional)

The configuration keyword that determines the storage parameters of the database tables. This applies to file and enterprise geodatabases. The DEFAULTS keyword is used by default.
