00277: Version Management is enabled, but the connected geodatabase user, <value>, is not the branch versioned dataset’s owner, <value>

You are sharing a map image layer with the version management capability enabled. The geodatabase user that you are connected as is not the branch versioned dataset's owner. The user you are currently connected as will be indicated by the first <value> parameter. The branch versioned dataset's owner will be indicated by the second <value> parameter.


  • Connect to the database as the branch versioned dataset's owner and re-add the data to the map from the new connection.

More information

When working with SQL Server databases, version management cannot be enabled if the data being shared is owned by a dbo user. It is recommended that dbo users do not own any datasets in your enterprise geodatabase.
