Summary :: Usage :: Parameters :: Outputs :: Warnings :: Limitations


A tool that can delete the output(s) created by RivEX for the river network.


RivEX can generate tables of data or spatial datasets for a river network; this tool allows you to select the associated dataset(s) and delete them. Using this tool maintains the settings file integrity by clearing the settings file entry once the dataset has been deleted.

If you manually delete an output then the settings file becomes out of sync with what exists, it is recommended that you delete outputs via this tool rather going into the geodatabase and deleting them.  You can use the Check settings file integrity tool to find and reset invalid entries (the dataset has been deleted but there is still a record of it in the settings file).




Data type

River Network

The river network which has 1 or more outputs created by RivEX you wish to delete. 

Feature Layer

Outputs to delete

The river network may have 1 or more associated datasets created by RivEX. You must select at least one dataset for this tool to run.

List [of strings]


None, but the settings file is updated if datasets are deleted.


With the release of ArcGIS Pro 3.2.1 a switch control appears on parameters that accept tables\feature classes, do not interact with it! More advice here.


  1. This tool is not meant to be run in a scripting environment, it is for you to delete RivEX generated outputs safely whilst ensuring setting file integrity. Run this tool from toolbox in an active ArcPro session.
  2. A limitation of this tool is that it deletes only the last known associated dataset as the settings file only ever records the latest version. For example you have run the sampling tool three times on the network sampling different numbers across the network. The settings file will record the last run and the tool will delete that dataset if the user chooses it. The other two sampling datasets will remain in the sampling geodatabase until you manually delete them.
