If I create a licensed file geodatabase and I convert a feature class within in it as KMZ/KML file through the conversion tool, will it inherit the restrictions that I created within the licensed filegeodatabase?


Currently not, per Esri's Generated License File Geodatabase

You cannot license individual feature classes or tables to produce a mixed state where some feature classes or tables are licensed and others are not. However, a licensed file geodatabase allows you to add an unlicensed feature class or table through operations such as creating a new, empty feature class, copying and pasting, or importing a feature class.

    So basically if I generate a license file geodatabase will not resolve my query which I have posted in another thread, i.e. my intent of applying copying restrictions to a kmz/kml that I created in ArcMap. So it seems there is no solution to what I am trying to achieve. – Victoria Mar 19 '18 at 15:46
  • It will remain restricted within the File geodatabase, if you are thinking to add the KMZ/KML to the file geodatabase withe the license restriction, then export the KMZ/KML as it's own file to share with those restrictions, I don't think that is possible at this time. – whyzar Mar 19 '18 at 15:53
