What are some best practices for editing Multi-versioned sde data through a feature service? What should I be looking into?

EDIT: seeing that when publishing a feature service the service is published but does not show up on the rest page..but I can reference it through it's full url?? If this observation would best serve as a separate question..please advise.

  • If it is not showing up then you just need to refresh the rest cache.

  • Now to your original, I have always been against editing through a feature service. Now in a multi-versioned sde that would only make me more nervous.

    @Justin,ah yes, but how are readers to know since your question doesn't indicate what you've already read/done to resolve the issue? Nov 2, 2011 at 21:46

I highly recommend watching these two videos from Esri on editing:
