I am using a relationship class to maintain a one-to-many relationship between material sites (under Engineering's purview) and the material sites' sample status and content (under Materials' purview). I have privileged the tables such that Engineering personnel (user A) can edit the origin table and Materials personnel (user B) can edit the destination table. This works well, until user B needs to create a new record in the related table.

In order to create a new record in the related table, user B must have editing privileges to the origin table. This is the only way to access the Attributes dialog from the Editor toolbar, which appears to be the only method which programmatically ensures the GlobalID and ParentGUID fields match. Otherwise, you have to rely on the user to copy/paste.

Is there a workaround here? A way to split relationship class privileges between two different users while still maintaing referential integrity?

Thank you!

If this is something that you are still keen to try and get Answer-ed then you may want to edit it, perhaps to revise it with the versions you are using now, and maybe to try and make what you are asking even clearer. –  PolyGeo Apr 4 '14 at 23:41
