Managing data spaces

To manage a data space, you must be a tenant admin, a data admin, or the space owner. Members of the data space who have the Can manage role can also manage the space.

Information noteWhen you create a data space, you are automatically assigned the Is owner role. See Data space roles and permissions for details about roles and permissions.

Creating a space

If you are a tenant admin or data admin, you can create a data space from the Management Console or from the Data Services home. If you are a non-admin user with data space creator role, you can create data spaces from the Data Services home.

  1. Do either:

    • From the Spaces section of the Management Console, click Create new.

      Create data space from Management Console

    • From the Data Services home, on the Manage data assets tab, click Add new then select Create data space.

      Create data space from Data home

  2. Enter a name and description.

  3. Click Create.

Editing a space

If you are a tenant or data admin, a data space owner, or a member of a data space with the Can manage role, you can edit the data space.

  1. Do either:

    • From the Spaces section of the Management Console, click the Three dots button button, then click Edit.

    • From the Data Services home, on the Manage data assets tab, select the data space. Click edit pencil icon Edit space.

  2. In the Edit space window, change the name and description.

  3. Click Save.

Changing a space owner

Only the tenant admin and the data admin can change the space owner. This can only be done from the Management Console.

  1. From the Spaces section of the Management Console, click Change owner.

  2. In the Change owner window, search for a user by name, email, subject, or user ID.

  3. Click Apply.

Adding and removing data space members and roles

When a data space is first created, only the user who creates the space is a member of the space. To allow other users access to the data space and data assets inside the space, you first add members to the space, and then you assign them roles that give them permissions on the space and data assets in the space. You can add and remove data space members, and you can change or remove their roles. To add or remove members of a data space, or to edit a member's role, you must be a tenant or data admin, the data space owner, or a member of a data space with the Can manage role. See Data space roles and permissions to learn about the different roles you can assign to members of a data space.

  1. Do either:

    • From the Spaces section of the Management Console, click the Three dots button button, then click Manage members.

    • From the Data Services home, on the Manage data assets tab, select a data space. Click info icon Details, then click Members.

  2. Click Add members.

  3. Search for a user to add to the space.

  4. Select the roles for the new user.
