Create an Owning Group for your data

All data published to your Koordinates site belongs to a group. Groups can be used to manage data, and also share data with groups of users. 

Note that not all groups will be visible to all users. To view or manage a group, a user needs to be added with appropriate permissions (see '5', below). 


Select 'Admin' from the top menu


Click 'Users & Groups' and select 'Groups'


Select Create Group


Add Group Details

These details include:

  • Title. Give your group a human-readable name for your users.
  • URL. Choose your own URL for the group.
  • Country.
  • Include in Public Data Catalog Feeds. Check this box to make public data in this group available to publicly-accessible catalog feeds such as CS‑W and DCAT.
  • Enable Access Requests. Check this box to enable users to request access to the group
  • Listed Data Publisher. Choose whether the group name or your organisation will be listed as the publisher of this data.


Click 'Add Users'


Add new Group members

Begin typing the name or email address, and a dropdown menu will provide a list of suggestions. Note that you can only add people who are already users of your Data Service.


Determine permissions for each user

You'll have the option to decide whether each user can:

  • Access Data
  • Manage Data
  • Manage Group

You'll now be able to grant bulk permissions to find, view, download, or manage data to all group members from the 'Manage Data' tab.
