Is there any way to protect default version from editing by some users ? I know that we can set default version to Protected level but it will restrict all the users from editing default version. Please help!

That might help with what you are trying to do.

What we do is have only administrators (or DBOs) be able to modify the default directly, including reconciling and/or performing admin tasks (compress, etc).  We then have versions off the master for general modifications, and if I (as admin) want to temporarily make a few changes, I just spin up another version off the master, make my changes, reconcile and post, and make sure the other editors pull my changes.

The main changes I make directly to default is updating the domain when needed.  I typically try to get everything posted before I do this (although, domains seem to work with versions) and get back to a state of 0.   This probably doesn't work for most agencies, but there are only two of us that access our master.  Everyone else reads from FGDB pulled from the master SDE database.

Sorry for late response as I was unable to login due to technical problem on this site..

Thanks for giving your helpful tips but we also have replicas and if I keep DEFAULT version protected in each replica then our sync operation fails because of protected version.

Also as we drag feature class to layer, by default it connects to DEFAULT version and everytime user needs to change their version.

Thus I wanted to know if we can restrict access to default for some users OR is it possible for users to directly connect to a specific version instead of DEFAULT when they drag data to layer ?

Thanks!
