Members default access now configurable

Big news today! 🎉

You asked and we listened. Admin users now have the ability to change the default access of the Members of their organization.

You can find this new feature on the Members tab in the section titled Default access for all members.

Members is the special out-of-the-box group that automatically includes all members in an organization and determines the minimum level of access for all members in the organization. Please read more about this setting in our Docs Portal.

Metrics for Suggested Changes Workflow


We’ve enriched our suite of metrics with the ability to monitor and govern all change requests submitted and approved/denied to your catalog resources via the UI.

With suggest changes metrics, you can monitor the following:

  • All approvals/denials to any ‘suggest change’ request submitted to your catalog resources. 
  • All pending ‘suggest change’ requests (neither approved nor denied) 
  • An activity receipt on all catalog resources (highlighting the number of edits, deletes, creations, views, and changes submitted on any resource).

PRO TIP: Query these tables in our built in query workbench for powerful insights, such as filtering by a specific type of resource, the responder or requestor, or by a particular date range. This short video highlights some key use cases:

This enhancement to our metrics suite allows governance teams to quickly find a list of all change submissions which haven’t been acted upon, or monitor the changes to your catalog resources made via the UI. 

Tables added/updated:

  1. Events - Catalog Resources Approved Or Denied Suggestions - By Day
  2. Events - Catalog Resources Pending Suggestions - By Day
  3. Events - Catalog Resources Pages Activity - By Day

User Groups for Organizations

We're excited to announce that we've released a significant new feature to give organizations more flexibility in managing members and permissions through User Groups.

With groups, you can:

  • Create new custom groups to independently manage people, data, and metadata on the platform much more easily.
  • Grant groups access to organization-owned datasets and projects.
  • Manage different levels of access to all metadata catalog resources via groups.
  • Have different access levels for people responsible for catalog configuration and for catalog curation.

This feature has changed how new users are added to organizations on the platform. This short video highlights the changes. 


Top concept powered by Eureka Answers

data.world is built on a knowledge graph that allows rich context and relationships in your data catalog. This data helps users find quick answers and discover related resources and people. Our new Top concept search feature utilizes Eureka Answers to build upon your glossaries and relationships to help surface quick answers and bring them to the top of the search results page.


Learn more about Eureka Answers and our knowledge graph in this preview announcement and read more about this feature and understanding your search results in our documentation.

Collection metadata editing

We now support the ability to edit collection metadata through the data.world app. If you have the required permissions within your organization, you should now see an edit button on the collection pages.

This functionality is only around editing, with support for suggestions coming soon.

Metrics update: December 17, 2021

Updated metrics tables/reports have arrived on December 17, 2021! Some reports may take 24-48 hours to reflect the new data after deploy due to sync timing.

Data dictionary has been updated to reflect the latest updates as well.

Updated Tables - For both multi-tenant and single-tenant

  1. Events - Metadata Assets Activity - By Day: Column name changed from “resourceid” to “resource” - this change was applied in order to bring this table into conformity with the dimension naming convention used elsewhere in the metrics dataset.
  2. Membership - All Time List: Added “current_member” column (boolean; TRUE: account is currently provisioned; FALSE: account is currently de-provisioned). Added “last_date_active” column (the date of the user’s most recent activity in data.world).
  3. Tops - Requests: Name of table/report changed to “Tops - Most Requested Resources.” Added “resourcetype” column (dimension; indicates whether the requested resource was a dataset, group, etc.).
