Cohort access rights

Hi there,

I have a question concerning the possibility to restrict the access to cohort definitions in Atlas. We are already using Atlas with OpenID with a hand full of users working in parallel with the data sets. So everybody can see, copy and manipulate the generated cohorts of the other users. This works great - thanks to all the contributors!

Now we got a new requirement. We are planning to make an educational Atlas set up for students. The aim is a kind of an audit platform where the students have to show what they have learned about the usage of OMOP/Atlas defining Cohorts, Concept Sets and so on. A prerequisite is that they can not cheat and just copy or manipulate the work of other students. Is this somehow feasible with the rights management? Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Best regards,

Iā€™m afraid not. Sharing of content is actually one of the activities the application encourages.

You might want to consider making multiple variations of tests that would make it difficult for people to share solutions (ideally, unique tests per student).

Thanks for your reply - but sadly not what I wanted to hear :wink: We expect around 300 students for the course. So, generating individual tasks would be exhausting. Perhaps a task for ChatGPT though :upside_down_face: Anyways, maybe we will have to rethink our concept.
