Disabling attribute validation (Production Mapping)
If you do not want to validate the attributes every time you change the attributes on the Create Attributes or Update Attributes window, you can disable validation. This means that when you update the attribute values, the combination of values is not checked to ensure it is valid.
When validation is disabled on the Create Attributes or Update Attributes window, you can run a batch job on the data in a Reviewer session at a later time.
- Start ArcMap.
- If necessary, load data in the map.
- On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Editing.
Click the Production Start Editing button on the Production Editing toolbar.
The Manage Features and Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes windows automatically appear when you start an edit session using the Production Start Editing tool.Tip:
If the Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes window does not appear when you start an edit session, click the Show/Hide Attributes button on the Manage Features window.
Right-click the Create Attributes or Update Attributes window, then click Enable Validation > Enable.
The check mark disappears next to Enable, and validation is disabled.
