I created a Database View using Catalog 10.7 and registered it with the database, running SQL Server. VW was created from the default version using the geodatabase admin connection. However, I'm not able to see data updates when connecting to other users / versions.
Did you ever figure this out?
If I remember correctly, I had to create the view from SQL server instead of ArcMap.
However, I'm not able to see data updates when connecting to other users / versions.
On a general note:
A database view refers to the base table of the underlying data. If your data is Registered as Versioned, then edits may still be in the A- & D- delta tables. So you need to Reconcile and Post (if editing is done on other versions than DEFAULT) and then perform the compress.
