We need to programmatically load Topology rules to a feature dataset nightly.  We do this because our control layer is managed by a different organization- so we have to copy in changes.  To copy in changes, we first have to remove the existing topology- then bring in changes- then load rules.  We'd love it if we could load our whole rule set (.rul) via Python. 

Thanks for your consideration.

We all need this function smart idea.

Unlike the manual GUI-based process of creating a geodatabase topology, arcpy's Add Topology Rule tool apparently cannot import rules from a .rul file. I am also not aware of any ability for arcpy to read or export geodatabase rules to a .rul file. (The .rul file contains topology rules and can be exported and import to/from geodatabase topologies using ArcGIS Pro.)

Please add the ability for arcpy to also read, import, and export rules from/to a .rul file (or a similar file format, e.g. text, json, etc.) as this would simplify creating and maintaining topologies.
