I am currently using a shapefile consisting of an area smaller than the entire study boundary ie. I want this to to be my overall study area. I used a raster to polygon tool and converted it to a shapefile and used the Dissolve tool to create a multipart polygon.
Now when I am creating random points and specify the constraining feature class, it is creating random points outside the polygons I possess as well. Attached is a screenshot of random points all over, instead of just within the polygons.
