Set permissions for your data

Once you have uploaded your data, you’ll want to set permissions on how it can be accessed, downloaded and administered.

Permissions are originally determined when a dataset is imported, though they can be edited at anytime. Permissions can be specified for a range of groups and user roles.

Note that data permissions are distinct from licensing. You may, for example, decide to make a dataset with a liberal license view-only, or withdraw it from public access.

1

Select 'New Admin' from the Admin menu

2

Select 'Manage Data'

3

Select your dataset

You can locate your dataset by entering a search term and filtering by group, date created, data type, status, and last update. 

4

Click the 'Access' tab

5

Click the 'Public Access' dropdown to set public data permissions

You can choose between:

  • No access. This means individuals without specific access permissions won't be able to find, view, or download your data
  • Standard access. This means individuals will be able to find, view, and—when signed in—download your data.
  • Advanced access. This option provides a range of find, view, and download options for members of the public and registered users.  

6

Click on the 'Groups' dropdown to set group permissions

This option allows you to give bulk permissions to all users that are members of a Group. Simply select a specific Group, and then determine the permissions you wish to grant to all members of that Group.

Click 'Apply' to set permissions, or 'Discard' to discard your changes
