Creating a Private URL for your dataset allows you to share your dataset (for viewing and downloading of files) before it is published to a wide group of individuals who may not have a user account on UVa’s Dataverse Repository. Anyone you send the Private URL to will not have to log into UVa’s Dataverse Repository to view the dataset.
Once published the private URL will no longer work. You must use the published DOI.
To disable a Private URL and to revoke access, follow the same steps as above until step #3 when you return to the popup, click the “Disable Private URL” button. Note that only one PrivateURL (normal or with anonymized access) can be configured per dataset at a time.
