A simple question for the knowledgeable.  We have a department that edits a feature class stored in our enterprise SDE geodatabase using the Collector App.  We replicate our standard datasets to a file geodatabase on their server (parent to child 1-way).  I recently enabled archiving on the dataset they edit in the field.  This is a dataset that is changing throughout the week, with features being added and then deleted (currently placed mosquito traps for west nile virus testing program).  

Here is my question:  For them to be able to see historical views of the dataset, do they need a connect to our SDE database? Or can we replicate this dataset to the file geodatabase and they will be able to view historical versions of it? I am presuming they need the SDE connection, but wanted to ask the experience.

Thanks,

Patrick

You are right.  You will use the Geodatabase Connection Properties of your enterprise geodatabase connection *(your parent) to view the historical versions.   You won't be able to view those historical versions in the file geodatabase.  

Just to be 100% certain, I made a connection in my enterprise geodatabase to a historical version, add that data to ArcMap and go through the create replica process it will fail.  Replication cannot replicate read only data, so it makes sense.
