Set permissions for data


Select 'New Admin' from the Admin menu


Select 'Manage Data'


Select the dataset for which you wish to edit permissions

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


Click the 'Access' tab


Click on 'Public' dropdown to set public 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.  


Click on the 'Group' dropdown to set group permissions

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


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

In addition, note that:

  • If you set liberal public permissions, these permissions will override more restrictive permissions provided to administrators, users or staff.
  • For sets, permissions are dependent on the permissions for each of the objects in the set. For example, if your set items all allow public download, this setting will carry through to the set as a whole
  • Staff permissions are only available if your site has 3rd party authentication configured for identifying staff users.
