Will adding an attribute rule to a feature class or table render the entire SDE not compatible with arcmap?

There is a note in the 'Add Attribute Rule' notes I have a question about:

"Note: Once you add attribute rules to a dataset, the minimum client version for the dataset is ArcGIS Pro 2.1. This means that the dataset will no longer be available for use in ArcMap."

If I add an attribute rule by right clicking a layer (or table) in my SDE (Design -> Add Attribute Rule) will I be unable to open any feature classes or tables from my SDE in arcmap or just that specific feature class or table?

It should just affect the dataset where you've added attribute rules.

Below you can see that I am able to add a feature class from the same geodatabase to ArcMap.

But when I try to add a feature class where I have applied an attribute rule, ArcMap is not able to open it.

As always, make sure to either create a backup of your data, or create a copy and do your testing on the copy to verify that everything works as expected.

Hope this helps.
