Removes a rule from a topology.
When running this tool using scripting, the feature class ObjectClassID involved in the topology rule to be removed must be specified in parentheses after the rule name. For example
- Must Not Overlap (2) where "2" is the ObjectClassID of the feature class that participates in the Must Not Overlap rule that is to be removed from the topology.
- Must Be Properly Inside (78-79) where "78" and "79" are the ObjectClassID of the feature classes that participate in the Must Be Properly Inside rule that is to be removed from the topology
Removing a rule will require the entire extent of the topology to be validated.
