What is a data license?

Data license approval workflow

  • Data Licenses are created and submitted to each organization's approver group.
  • Only users from the Data Licensee organization may submit the license.
  • Upon approval by all organizations (i.e. licensee and data custodian organizations), the Data Republic platform admin will need to approve the license before data access can be provisioned.
  • Note: Approvers don't need to be added to a project to approve the license. However, if you require the approver to participate in project conversations you must add them to the project. Anyone in the approver group will receive a notification when a license has been submitted for approval, however, only one user from the group needs to approve. 
  • Notification: the licensee org approver(s) and submitter will receive an email notification when the license has been approved or rejected.

Data license permissions

  • Project - Access or Project - Create - enables users to create and submit data licenses. This means anyone in the project can create, update, and submit a license for review.
  • License - Organisation Approver - can approve data licenses on behalf of their organization.
