Secure data access with CUG
Finely granulated Access Management
The “Closed User Groups” (CUGs) are a function to make certain data sets available to certain users.
A CUG consists of an exclusive group of users from one or more companies who share one or more specific data sets. The data is usually confidential.
Any member of the CUG can propose new members.
All data providers must approve the invitation to add a member. Otherwise, the membership application will be rejected. A user can also request membership. In this case, the same approval logic applies.
A CUG consists of admins and members. Only the CUG admin can remove members from the CUG.
Using the CUG function in the Marketplace
A CUG can be created by selecting “User Groups” > “Create Closed User Group” in the navigation bar. After clicking it, a dialog opens asking for the group name, a description of the group, a group logo and the members to be added. Once the group has been created by a confirmation, you will automatically be taken to the group overview, where you can add files, additional members and details to the group with a simple click. The sovereignty over the group is held by the group admins, who can also share files with the group.
You can get an overview of your existing CUGS via the link “User Group” > “My Closed User Groups”.
What is an “Organization”?
An “organization” on the data marketplace is a mapping of organizations, companies, associations etc. of real life on the marketplace. Users and data can be assigned to these organizations and access rights can be defined by an integrated user role system.
An organization on the data marketplace is associated with a membership of the level “Small Business” or “Enterprise”. Adapted to your needs, an organization is created on the marketplace, a responsible person is registered as “Owner” (user role with the highest administration rights of an organization) and the possibility is given to add a number of additional persons as members, defined by the contract.
