EXPLORE - impossible to update a query in a dashboardAnswered
Hello zendesk team,
I have an EDITOR profil and a colleague is an ADMIN.
I shared him an EXPLORE dashboard and he can't update the queries in it. and I have the same issue with his dashboard.
We tried to investigate by ourself and we noticed that we used some dataset that we don't share for those queries.
And he doesn't seem to be able to share this dataset with me...
Have you any idea about this issue and have you any idea of how we can resolve it ?
Thanks for your time and for helping us.
I tell my various Explore users to create their own dataset as a light security feature. There is no way to share that dataset or the queries associated with it. If you want multiple people to be able to edit a query, you need to base that query off of the global dataset that everyone has access to.
You can clone the existing query over to the global dataset, but if there are any customizations (calculated metrics for example), you'll have to recreate those. Keep in mind, anyone with editor privileges will then be able to modify that query.
There are definitely some shortcomings in the security/sharing aspect of Explore, but hopefully what I provided helps you.
That's what i thought. Thank you for your help.
I cloned the default dashboards and queries, then I could make any change I wanted to my custom dashboards.
That's what we do for queries we want to restrict. The original question was about sharing with other users so that more than one person can modify the query. The method you describe doesn't allow for sharing a specific query.
