Managing access to a data source#


Only the data provider will be able to manage such access in the Customer Portal. If the data provider and data owner are not the same organization, the data provider will need to get approval from the data owner directly (for example through an email). Support for such approval flows in the Customer Portal will be implemented at a later time. Details on how to manage access as a provider can be found here

If the data source was created using Dataporten Dashboard the access still needs to be managed there. See Managing access in Dataporten Dashboard.

Dataporten Dashboard will be discontinued at some point, as we are working to add all functionality to the Feide Customer Portal. Read more about the further development of the Feide Customer Portal in the news article on the Feide website.

Managing access to data in Dataporten Dashboard#


All new data sources should be registered and managed in Feide Customer Portal. Dataporten Dashboard should only be used for data sources that are already registered in Dataporten Dashboard or sources with multiple data owners that the data provider does not want to register as multiple data sources in Feide Customer Portal.

If the data source is created in Dataporten Dashboard the access needs to be managed in Dataporten Dashboard, and from there the data owner can manage access to data sources registered by a data provider.

Logging in to the Dataporten Dashboard.

If you are registered as an administrator in the Feide customer portal, you will be able to log in to Dataporten dashboard with the same credentials.

The section “Access to data sources” in the Dashboard lets an administrator at a host organization manage access to data sources. If you press “Manage access to data sources (APIs)”, you get to a page listing applications and APIs they want access to when a user from your organization is logged in to the application.

For each application, the page shows APIs with scopes and subscopes you may approve or reject.

If you have scrolled down on the page, it is easy to overlook the “Save changes” button near the top. If you do not press this button, changes will be lost.

The page shows APIs which are accessed through the Legacy API Gatekeeper

The APIs show up unless the API owner has set the organization accept policy to Auto-accept for all scopes in the API.
