Get access to a common

Commons created by others

Normally in a dataspace, you have the possibility not only to publish your own data, but also to request access to commons (data) that other partners have made available in the dataspace. In this section we will show you how to request the access to such commons.

Login and select the desired dataspace

Once logged-in in TrustRelay, select the desired dataspace where you would like to create the data-sharing agreement template.
If you notice a warning symbol on the dataspace selector, it means you haven't selected a dataspace yet.

Once the dataspace has been selected, open the main drawer by clicking the Top-left Hamburger Icon then click on the option "Commons".
Then click on the submenu "Request access" located near the page title.
A drawer will open on the right side.
Select an available common e.g.
Select a common to request access.
Once a common has been selected, you are able to click on the link "Accept agreement" which will open a new tab displaying all the relevant information related to the Data-sharing Agreement that is attached to the corresponding common.
Good to know: Accepting the data-sharing agreement is not needed for accounts that share the same email domain and the same organizational unit than the creator of the common.
If you're happy with the terms and conditions of the data-sharing agreement you can go back to the previous browser tab, tick the option "Accept agreement" and finally click the button "request access".
Accept the agreement and click Request access
Congratulations. You have requested access to a new common.
