Manage permissions for organizations or private resources such as actors, actor runs and storages. Allow other users to read, run, modify or build new versions.
By default, each system resource (actor, key-value store, run, ...) you create is only available to you, the owner. There are three ways you can grant access to your resources: the access rights system, using the organization account or by publishing your actor in Apify Store.
You can easily and securely share your own resources - actors, tasks, key-value stores, datasets and request queues using a granular permissions system. This enables you to, for example, allow your colleague to run an actor or view a dataset but not to modify them.
You can also grant permission to update an actor and build a new version. Storages (key-value stores, request queues and datasets) are sharable the same way with, for example, just read permission, or a combination of both read and write permissions.
To be able to grant access rights to another user you must have a username set in account settings.
To share an actor, task, key-value store, request queue or dataset, open its Settings tab and at the very bottom you will find the Access rights section. You can add a collaborator using their user ID, email or username. Once you have added the collaborator, you can configure their permissions.
Apify's organization account allows you to grant role-specific access permissions to members of your team. For more details, see the organization account documentation.
When you publish an actor, you give every Apify user the read and run permissions.
However, without the relevant permissions (e.g. write, build, delete), no one except the author can modify an actor.
If a user runs the actor, it gets billed to their account, and the actor run will be available only to them.
To publish an actor, open it in the Apify console, go to the Publication tab and follow the instructions below.
- The access rights system allows you to manage a specific user's permissions for a specific resource.
- The organization account allows you to manage each member's permissions for all of an organization's resources.
- By publishing your actor in Apify Store, you grant all of its users read (view its source code) and run permissions.
