I've added several attribute rules to a point feature class, and fat fingered the field name for one of the rules. (See screen cap below).  I need to change the Field value to the correct field name, but everything is grayed out and I can't.

Can you edit an attribute rule once it is in place or do I need to delete it and re-enter it?

edited to add:  Just took a look at Alter Attribute Rule—Data Management toolbox | Documentation  but there is no parameter for field name...

Hey Joe,

Some of the properties are read-only. As you have surmised, those that are grayed out fall into that category. The full list of editable properties for reference (no doubt matches what you are seeing):

Okay. Thanks-  I guess the first rule of Attribute Rules is No Fat Fingers Allowed.

Hi JoeBorgione,

I encountered similar issues when developing attribute rules for our enterprise geodatabase. However in my instance, widespread changes to the naming convention of the attribute rules were required.

To reduce the level of work involved with deleting and re-creating each attribute rule individually, I exported the rules to a CSV file Export Attribute Rules (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation This provided an opportunity to edit the rules within Excel before importing the rules back into the Geodatabase Import Attribute Rules (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

This approach may not be effective for managing small adjustments, but in my case it proved very effective for large scale alterations.

Regards,

Matthew
