NB: This article will focus on creating a new workspace. Learn what a workspace is here and find out how you can manage communication, permissions, and collaboration.

How to Create a Workspace

  1. Navigate to the 'Home' page and click on the 'Create new' button.

  2. Select 'Workspace' from the dropdown. It will take you to the metamodel templates page.

  3. Click 'Choose' on the metamodel template that best suits your needs or create a new one. You can build your own metamodel by selecting the 'Blank Workspace' template under the 'Other' tab.

  4. Give your workspace a name in the 'Edit workspace properties' menu.

  5. Done! You are now ready to start adding data, whether that's components, references or fields.

Minimum Workspace Permissions

Minimum workspace permissions determine the minimum access the users in your organization will have to each workspace. You can give explicit users more access, but no user will have less access than the minimum. For example, you can allow all users to read and add explicit users that can write.

NB! The only exception is that an Ardoq read user will never have more access than read permissions.

Changing minimum workspace permissions:

From an open workspace, click the main menu at the top right, choose Workspace and click on "Edit collaborators and permissions".

On the dashboard, click the 3-dot menu of the workspace you’d like to change minimum permissions for, then click on “Permissions”:

In the dialog that appears, you can grant permissions to existing Ardoq users (read how to invite new users), to user groups, or change the permissions for the default group: All organization members.

If you have a user with a Write role, and you want to grant this user access to write for one Workspace and only Read for another, set the minimum permission to "No Permissions." Then search for a user in Find user or group, and grant that user Read-only access.
