Article Summary

What is a share?

A share comprises configuration settings for a source dataset, destination platform and region, data access permissions, loading semantics, data transfer frequency, and an activity tracking event log. It is a centralized management hub where users can perform actions such as pausing transfers, revoking access, and deleting shared data.

To learn more about configuring a share see the following how-to articles:

Creating a share

To create a new share, click on the Create share button from the shares page.

Viewing all shares

The shares page contains a list of all configured shares in Bobsled.

Cloning a share

The Clone Share feature enhances the share functionality by allowing users to duplicate existing shares.

To clone a share, navigate to the share you wish to duplicate and select "Make a copy" from the three dots menu in the top right. This action clones all elements of the share, including the consumer organization, destination access, source, and transfer, creating an identical new share.

Cloning Without Destination

To clone a share for delivering to a new region, users should will be prompted to chose a destination and region as part of the clone share prompt. After choosing the destination and the cloning process can be completed. The new share will retain the same source and transfer as the original, but with a different destination.

When to use clone share

The Clone Share feature is particularly useful in scenarios requiring the replication of share configurations with minor adjustments, such as changing the destination. For example, a user can clone an existing share and simply select a different storage location as the destination, ensuring all other configurations remain unchanged. This capability streamlines the process of creating multiple shares with similar configurations but different destinations for different end consumers.
