Migrated existing data from other systems to Water Distribution Utility Network. The existing dataset included retired, inactive water lines, devices, and junction to the UN. Is it possible to use lifecycle status or any other system flag to exclude retired assets from the validation process? Or this will need to go down to the network category or asset type level in the model decide ?!

For example, the one In-Service (active) water main overlap partially with another decommissioned Water Main (different length). There are one junction and one device at two ends of decommissioned water main.  How to exclude inactive assets from the validation ? to exclude them from the dirty area and error lines and error points.

They cannot be eliminate from the topology, only set as barriers to the subnetwork to prevent them from being part of a trace.

Here are more details related to the question. will like to exclude any inactive/to be decommissioned devices out from UN topology Validation (removed them from the dirty area as they are not the active devices).

If there any other way to check or update, please share your thoughts if there are any possibilities? 

Though the Inactive assets should get excluded if the life cycle status is not 8 (active) or 16(to be retired)

The inactive devices are showing the error with status : 

A water Main lifecycle status 64 (decommissioned), p:device status = open (1)

The device and junction both have status 128 (disposed), p:device status = open (1)

All three category is "SYSTEM"

below is the UN Network setting property 

UN_Trace_Condition
