Share Flow Dialog

You can manage access to a flow or send a copy to one or more users. In Flow View, select ... > Share....

Types of Sharing

  • Manage access: When you grant another user access to one of your flows, you both can work on the objects of the flow. You can take turns editing the recipes, which allows the team to more rapidly complete the work.

    NOTE: When a user is given access to a flow, that user is considered a collaborator on the flow and has a smaller set of permissions than the owner of the flow. For more information, see Overview of Sharing.

    NOTE: Any user may be given access to a flow. However, this user must have access to the underlying data. If the imported dataset is stored in a private directory, the user cannot access datasets in the shared flow.

  • Send a copy: When you send a copy of a flow to another user, you create a complete copy of the flow and all of its assets, and the platform assigns the other user as the owner of this new flow. Changes made in one flow or its objects do not impact the other flow.

Manage Access Tab

Through this tab, you can invite one or more collaborators to the flow, so that you may work together on the same objects.

  • To add users as collaborators in your flow, start typing the email address of a user with whom you'd like to collaborate. Repeat this process to add multiple users. You cannot send copies to users in other projects.

    NOTE: Each entry must be a valid email address of a user who has access to your project. In the above image, valid email addresses are obscured for security purposes.

  • To save your changes, click Save.

  • Each selected user now can access the flow through their flows page. See Flows Page.

    NOTE: Collaborators have a reduced set of permissions on the flow. For example, they cannot edit the flow name or description or delete it. See Overview of Sharing.

Send a Copy Tab

In this tab, you can create a copy of the current flow for one or more users. These flows are independent from the original.

  • To send a copy of your flow to other users, type in the valid email address of the user in your project to whom you are sending the copy. You cannot send copies to users in other projects.

    NOTE: Each entry must be a valid email address of a user who has access to your project. In the above image, valid email addresses are obscured for security purposes.

  • To send your copy or copies, click Send.
  • Each selected user now has a copy of the flow among their list of flows. See Flows Page.
