FAQ: When adding a GlobalID attribute should the values be NULL in the archive class?

Question

When adding a GlobalID attribute should the values be NULL in the archive class?

Answer

When adding a GlobalID attribute to an existing versioned, archive-enabled class in the geodatabase, the GlobalID values will be set for the versioned class, but the GlobalID values in the archive class will be set to NULL.

Once objects are archived to the archive class when the DEFAULT version is modified, the GlobalID values start appearing in the archive class.

This is currently a known limitation.
