Is there a way to make attachments compulsory. That is, each time a user adds a new point or record, they have to include an attachment. I am exploring the Relationship class (Changing rules within it) but it looks like it can only be applied to subtype. There is no subtype in my feature class. I want to make sure each time a record comes in, there is a picture tag to it.

  • If attachments enabled on this feature class, you can add them to any new shape – FelixIP Aug 30 '17 at 3:38
  • I assume that this needs to be done at the data end as you might have more than one client app feeding new records into the service? – Simon Sep 2 '17 at 11:50

  • Yes, I was trying the to add a new field as raster and set is as Allow NULL = No. Apparently the Allow NULL = No will still allow users to save the attribute form (in Desktop Editing/Collector) even though users did not key in anything in the field even for fields like string/date/integer. – user45979 Sep 6 '17 at 3:21

    Everyone, let's focus on a situation when a user edits a feature class from a geodatabase in ArcMap and all new features that will be created should have an attachment added, otherwise they are not saved. Is it possible to get done without using ArcObjects (or SQL constraints if feature class is stored in a DBMS)? – Alex Tereshenkov Sep 8 '17 at 13:25

I am not aware of any way to do this, and a search of ArcGIS Ideas did not reveal anyone having already asked for it to be implemented.

Consequently, I think that you should post a new ArcGIS Idea.
