Resource Ownership

A resource in HydroShare may have multiple owners, each of whom has full control to do anything with the resource.  One owner of a resource is the “quota holder”. This is the user against whose quota the resource is counted in managing storage. The user that  creates a resource is first set as the owner and the quota holder. 

  • Additional owners may be added, or owners removed using managing access controls. You may not however remove the quota holder from ownership.  If you want to remove ownership for the quota holder, the quota holder needs to be changed first.

Changing the Quota Holder

  • When a resource has multiple owners, the quota holder can transfer the quota holder to any other owner. To change the quota holder, navigate to a  resource landing page, go into editing mode, and under access management, click “Change” to change who is the Quota Holder under the Storage field.  Only an owner of a resource can be the quota holder of the resource.

A box that says "Storage", and below a line of text that says "The Quota holder of this resource is: Clara Beth Cogswell" and below that "The size of this resource is 10.3 KB"

  • The owners and the quota holder of the resource are displayed on the resource landing page.
