I am using Arc Pro 2.8.2

I have a site address point layer with lots of attributes that will always be blank, but I have to keep them then I have a bunch of attrubutes I use.

I don't like null values, so I changed my settings to only allow null values for a few fields.

Then I disabled null values for the other fields.

I created domains for as many fields as I could and when I try to create a site address point I get an error of, "Failed to create new features, value doesn't fall within domain".

I would like to create the feature, then select the correct domain from the drop down menus I created afterwards. In most cases a default domain won't make sense.

I tried creating a domain called "Placeholder" that I could use as the default domain then I could change them after the feature is created, but some of them are not saving and I don't know why.

See the attachement for more information, The attributes with domains that I couldn't save as a default of "Placeholder" are highlighted in red.

If you set the Enforce attribute validation editing option to off, you should be able to create features that don't fall within the domain.

Does that help?

Are you using Alter Domain (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation to do the alterations?

Yes I was using the documentation. I found that what I was trying to save as the placeholder domain exceeded the character length. Once I reduced the number of characters I was able to save the placeholder domain.

Hi Scott,

I made the changes you suggested and now I am able to create features and enter the attributes afterward without having to use any placeholder domains at all. Thanks a lot for the help, I appreciate it.
