Manage your organizations, roles, and users

Organizations are the central “group” unit in data.world, and can be nested for ultimate control and flexibility over access control. An organization is made up of several different types of users:

  • Organization administrators are your data domain stewards / governance managers or other personnel who should have direct management over all the content in that organization.

  • Individual resources can have Owners assigned which may be more specific, “ground-level” data stewards.

  • “Discover” level access provides high-level metadata, but requires that a user request access to the resource before seeing additional information or being able to query the data. For more details on discoverable access, which is a very powerful feature that enables agile data governance, see Discoverable datasets.

Note

Organization administrators can see all org-owned datasets regardless of sharing configuration.
