Validation Attribute Rules in ArcGIS Pro

Validation attribute rules in ArcGIS Pro specify permissible attribute configurations and general relationships on a feature. They are used to check features in a dataset based on a specific requirement or constraint. This process allows you to perform quality assurance checks on features and review areas of concern as an iterative process. This video demonstrates how you can use a validation to check your records in a feature confirming that all points fall withing the boundary of a polygon.
