Clearing features out of the Feature Builder Scratch dataset

If you have used feature builder previously, you need to clear the scratch dataset. Also, once you have ensured that the features created or edited in the scratch dataset are acceptable, you can apply your edits to the database and clear the scratch dataset using the Clear Scratch Dataset tool.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. On the menu bar, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Feature Builder.
  3. Click the Launch Feature Builder button Launch Feature Builder on the Production Feature Builder toolbar.

    The Feature Builder window appears in ArcMap.

  4. Click the Clear Scratch Dataset button Clear scratch dataset at the top of the Feature Builder window.

Features are deleted from the dataset and no longer appear in your map.
