Set Up Session Manager
Session Manager allows you to establish and enforce a specific version structure and user roles. Session Manager creates an edit session in which an editor may make updates. After the changes are complete, the user forwards the session through an approval process. A session (and its associated version) may travel through the process several times before receiving approval and being posted to the geodatabase.
This section discusses setting up your database to use Session Manager. Select the type of database you are be using:
Once you've completed the initial set up, you can modify the version used as the base for all sessions. The default version base is SDE.Default. If you want to change this to a different version, set the SessionVerBase value on the Configuration tab of the Process Framework Administration Tool.
