Guidance

for users, publishers and sysadmins

Sysadmins

Sysadmins (System administrators) have full rights on data.gov.uk.

Currently the permission is split between Drupal and CKAN, so someone needs to be given permission in both places.

Drupal

Existing users with the ‘administrator’ role can be filtered for here: http://data.gov.uk/admin/people

An existing sysadmin should edit the user and add the ‘administrator’ role.

CKAN

Sysadmins are listed here: http://data.gov.uk/ckan-admin

To add one, on the server run this paster command:

/home/co/ckan/bin/paster --plugin=ckan sysadmin add user_d12345 --config=$CKAN_INI

Where 12345 is replaced with the numeric Drupal id. This is seen in the URL when you edit the Drupal user.
