Deleting a Dataset

Users with the Data Steward role (or via a custom role with appropriate permissions) can delete datasets in the FAIR platform. A Data Steward can only update and delete datasets that they created.

The dataset can be deleted by selecting the ‘Delete’ button in the actions ribbon. A dialog appears confirming that the user wants to delete the dataset.

The user must type in the name of the dataset to confirm its deletion, at which point the ‘Delete dataset’ button will become active.

When a dataset is deleted, all metadata and associated attachments are deleted from the platform and are not recoverable.

Users can also initiate the delete process from any location in the user interface that lists the dataset and has a vertical ellipsis with a dropdown delete menu item.
