Allow views to be registered with GDB so metadata can be stored with views ( spatial and non-spatial )

Idea created by vrogerson on May 16, 2012

    Please allow database views ( both spatial and non-spatial ) to be registered with the GeoDatabase in SDE.


    As metadata can only be associated with objects registered with the GDB, and since views ( both spatial and non-spatial ) can't be registered with the GDB,  we can not currenlty store metadata with database views.


    This is a big gap in functionality between SDE v9.3.1 and SDE 10.x
