Locking and Unlocking a Data Set

Locking and Unlocking a Data Set

To prevent users from editing or resetting a data set, you can lock the data set. You cannot make changes to the data or the metadata in a locked data set. The owner and the administrator can reset and edit a locked data set. Lock a data set if you need to check the data before you allow other users to edit or reset it. You can unlock the data set when you want to allow edits to the data set.
  1. Open the data set and click the
    Overview
    or
    Permissions
    tab.
  2. To lock the data set, click
    Actions
    Lock
    .
    The data set appears as locked in the
    Data Sets
    view. The
    Edit
    options do not appear in a locked data set.
  3. To unlock the data set, click
    Actions
    Unlock
    .
    The status of the data set is updated in the
    Data Sets
    view. The
    Edit
    options appear in the data set.
If you lock a
data set
that is published to the
self-service portal
, you restrict the tasks that you can perform on the
data pack
in the
self-service portal
.
The following users can perform tasks on a
data pack
if the
data set
is locked:
  • Administrator users and
    data pack
    owners can perform tasks on the
    data pack
    .
  • Shared users can edit the general properties of the
    data pack
    including the tags and description.
