ResearchDrive - Working With Collaborators If You Have Restricted Data

This document explains how to give collaborators access to your ResearchDrive storage if you work with Restricted Data. If you would like help managing collaborators then refer to ResearchDrive - Request Support for help.

ResearchDrive Collaboration Groups

ResearchDrive is integrated with the central campus Active Directory Services for NetID-based-authentication and security permissions and also the Roles and Access Management (Manifest) service for creating collaboration groups and providing NetIDs for UW affiliates and external collaborators.

Each ResearchDrive Restricted Data account has a Manifest folder and several default collaboration groups defined that are published to Active Directory and used to provide secure access to your storage.

Replace references to [netid] with your NetID username.
