This topic describes how to search for, delete, and rename a dataset. It also describes how to grant permissions on a dataset to specified workspace members, how to apply for permissions on a dataset, and how to transfer a dataset to another workspace member.

Prerequisites

A dataset is created. For information about how to create a dataset, see Create a dataset.

Search for a dataset

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Workspace. On the page that appears, click Datasets in the left-side navigation pane.
  2. On the Datasets page, enter a keyword of a dataset name or the dataset creator in the search box.
  3. Click the Search icon icon to search for datasets.

Manage dataset permissions

After you add a member to your workspace and set the user type parameter to Developer or Analyst, the member can view and use all the datasets in the workspace. To ensure dataset security, you must manage permissions. This section describes how to grant permissions on a dataset to specified members.

  1. On the Datasets page, find the dataset that you want to manage, click the More icon icon in the Actions column, and then click Use authorization.

    You can also right-click the dataset name and then click Use authorization.

  2. In the Data set use authorization dialog box, specify members who can access the dataset. 3
    • Space members: All analysts and developers in the workspace can access and manage the dataset.
    • Designated user: You can authorize analysts and developers in the workspace to access and manage the dataset.
  3. Click determine.

Apply for permissions on a dataset

If a workspace member has no access permissions on a dataset, the dataset name is displayed in gray to the member. The following figure shows an example. This section describes how to apply for access permissions on a dataset. 123
  1. On the Datasets page, find the dataset on which you want to apply for access permissions and click the 12 icon in the Actions column.

    You can also right-click the dataset name and then click Create Dashboard.

  2. On the Dataset Permission Application page, configure the Reviewer and Reason parameters and click OK.

Delete a dataset

  1. On the Datasets page, find the dataset that you want to delete, click the More icon icon in the Actions column, and then click Delete.

    You can also right-click the dataset name and then click Delete.

  2. In the message that appears, click OK.

Rename, transfer, and reset the security level for a dataset

You can edit the properties of a dataset. You can rename it, transfer it to another user, and reset the security level. This section describes how to edit the properties of a dataset.

  1. On the Datasets page, find the dataset that you want to manage, click the More icon icon in the Actions column, and then click Edit Properties.

    You can also right-click the dataset name and then click Edit Properties.

  2. In the Edit Properties panel, you can configure the following parameters. Datasets
    Parameter Description
    name Enter a new name for the dataset.
    owner Click the drop-down icon and select the UID of the user to whom you want to transfer the dataset.
    description Enter the information about the dataset.
    security strategy You can set the security strategy parameter to Private (Allow Only Workspace Owner to Edit) or Protected (Allow Other Workspace Members to Edit).
    • Private (Allow Only Workspace Owner to Edit): Only the owner can edit the dataset.
    • Protected (Allow Other Workspace Members to Edit): Members in the workspace can edit the dataset at the same time.
      When multiple users edit the dataset at the same time, the locking mechanism is in effect.
      Note Multiple users can modify a dataset at the same time, but only one user can save the changes that this user made. Other users must first click the Lock icon icon to lock the dataset and refresh the page to obtain the latest content of the dataset. Then, the user can modify and save the changes. If a user locks the dataset but not refresh the page, the changes that the last user saved are overwritten.
    Whether to scan a full table After this feature is enabled, the system scans the entire table.
    Note Only datasets that are created based on MaxCompute data sources support this feature.
    Authorization scope You can authorize workspace members or specified members to edit the dataset.
    • Space members: All the developers in the workspace are authorized to edit the dataset.
    • Designated person: Only the specified developers in the workspace are authorized to edit the dataset.
    Note This parameter is displayed only if you set security strategy to Protected (Allow Other Workspace Members to Edit).
  3. Click Save.
