Set permissions for a dataset
By setting permissions for a dataset, you define the level of access that groups or users have for the dataset.
When setting permissions, consider the following rules:
User-level permissions take priority over group-level permissions.
Example: If a user is allowed to edit a dataset, but at the same time, this user is a member of a group that does not have the permission to edit, the user will still have the capability to edit the dataset.
The most restrictive permissions take priority when a user belongs to several groups at the same time.
Example: A user belongs to both groups, Group A and Group B. Group A can edit the dataset, but Group B does not have this permission. The user will not be able to edit the dataset.
You have a dataset in the Datasets pane.
You have all the necessary role permissions granted by an administrator in Access Manager.Permissions
For the content in Shared with me, you need to have the View, Set permission shared content permissions granted by the sharer.
On the sidebar, click Datasets.
The Datasets pane appears.
Tile view is selected by default.
Point to More actions, and then select Share > Set permissions.
The Dataset permissions dialog appears, with the Groups option selected.
Specify for whom you want to set permissions for the dataset. You cannot simultaneously add groups and users in one step.
To add groups – Click the Groups tab, and then click the appropriate groups in the list.
To add users – Click the Users tab, and then click the appropriate users in the list.
The selected groups or users appear in the list of the recipients. To remove a recipient from the list, click next to the corresponding name.
The selected recipients appear in the list in edit mode.
