    It would be very beneficial to be able to prevent data from being included in a Locator by having the tool respect definition queries or selections set in the active map in ArcGIS Pro. Using the old LGIM schema as an example, site address points can be classified as "Current", "Pending", "Retired", "Temporary", or "Other". I want the Locator to only be built using site address points classified as "Current" or "Temporary". As it is now I have to export the current and temporary site address points to a new feature class and build the Locator using the new feature class.

     

    It would be much simpler to be able to set a definition query or selection on the site address points in ArcGIS Pro and have the Create Locator honor the definition query or selection.
