When you use Dataset Manager to import a dataset, you become its owner. At first, datasets which you own are only visible to you. To allow another user to reference your dataset in a query, you can use Dataset Manager to create a permission.
Each permission allows a single other user to query a single dataset which you own. If you want a user to be able to reference more than one dataset you own, you will need create a permission for each one.
A permission only allows the other user to query your dataset, obtaining results in anonymised, aggregate form. It doesn't grant access to your Bunker, and it doesn't allow access to individual records or to your original data.
You always remain in control of permissions for datasets you own. If you give another user permission to reference your dataset, they can't extend that permission to anyone else.
Dataset Manager refers to two types of permission: incoming and outgoing. You'll find these two different types of permission on two separate tabs in Dataset Manager.
- When someone gives you permission to reference a dataset they own, that is an incoming permission. Information is "coming in" to your organisation.
- When you give someone else permission to reference a dataset you own, that is an outgoing permission. Information is "going out" of your organisation (though only in aggregate and anonymised form).
Of course, this means that an incoming permission in your Dataset Manager is an outgoing permission in your collaborator's Dataset Manager - and vice versa.
