In the past I've seen extensions that have reconfigured the behavior in the attribute editor (field visibility, required, editable, etc), but I'm not aware of any instance where things like model names have been overloaded. Is there a specific piece of ArcFM configuration (AUs, model names, field properties, etc) that you are wanting to dfo this with?
Thanks for the feedback. I was actually hoping for a database level
solution in which there would be multiple sets of MM_ tables, one per
division. So for example there would be a MM_STORED_DISPLAYS_DIVA,
MM_STORED_DISPLAYS_DIVB, etc, and based on database roles when a particular
user from DIVA connected they would see the MM_STORED_DISPLAYS_DIVA table
as simply MM_STORED_DISPLAYS.
May be wishful thinking, though.

I've never seen that attempted before. It may be possible you could do this in a single database using views, but that's a little scary. I wonder if it's possible to create an extension in ArcMap (or a custom login) that can modify the list of displays/templates/etc that are loaded when a user connects to the database.
I have customers who has been interested in what you are suggesting for many years. Typically you would have editors documenting some attributes and people in other departments documenting other attributes. This is really an enhancement request to AcFM to be able to distinct the ArcFM configuration based upon the persons login privileges. ArcGIS now has it with the the editor templates. Using plain ArcGIS you are actually able to setup different mxd's (to different Departments) with different sets of field visibility, different sets of editable fields, different sets of nullable fields.I, and our users, would love to have the best of both worlds - to be able to save maps in the database, and set up configurations based upon database privileges ;-)
Thanks for the feedback. I guess I was aware that the
multiple-ArcFM-configurations per Geodatabase would not be simple thing.
Just wondered if anyone had attempted to tackle it over the years.
Thanks again for helping confirm this!
