The workspace is the home of your content on Redivis. It is created when you make a Redivis account and accessible by clicking the My workspace button in the right of the header bar from anywhere on the site. Your workspace is only visible to you and is where you will manage your work on Redivis.

Your workspace dashboard has links and information to help ground yourself in the work you are doing on Redivis. Beyond the dashboard, you will see pages listed on the left bar with different aspects of your account.


Any projects that you've created, or that have been shared with you, will show up here. You can create a project by clicking the + New project button on this page in order to start working with data. Clicking on a project here will open up the project interface.


Any datasets that you've uploaded or can edit will appear here. You can create a dataset by clicking the + New dataset button on this page in order to start uploading and sharing your data. Clicking on a dataset in this list will open the dataset editor which will allow you to work on the dataset.


This page lists all organizations that you're a member of. If you have applied for access to any restricted data, a copy of your submissions will be listed under the organization you applied to. You can search for new organizations to join by clicking the + Find new organization button.


Studies allow users to more easily work in groups. You can create a study by clicking the + New study button on the studies tab of your workspace. Any study you are a part of will appear in your workspace. Any edits you make will appear for all study collaborators.

Dataset library

This section contains any dataset that you have bookmarked. You can manually bookmark a dataset by clicking on the bookmark button next the dataset title on any dataset page. Redivis will also automatically bookmark datasets that you add to prjoects, or where you have applied for access. You can remove these at any time by right clicking on a dataset in this list and selecting the Remove from library option.


All activity you take when working with data on Redivis is logged. You can visit the Logs page of your account to view the details of your Query, Notebook, and Export actions.


Public profile

You can specify the following information, public to all users and organizations on Redivis:

  • Name: This is your full name displayed across Redivis. This will appear when collaborators search for you to share their projects, and the name administrators will see when interacting with any access steps you've submitted. It does not need to be unique.

  • Username: A unique handle for your account.

  • Profile picture: A picture visible next to your name throughout the platform.

  • ORCID iD: Link your ORCID ID so organizations can see research you are working on. See for more information on setting up an account.

  • Disciplines: Areas of interest and study that best represent your work and research.


You can use any email listed here to log in to your account. If you have more than one email address, the one marked as 'Primary' will be the one to receive any emails. You can authenticate with additional institutional or Google emails by clicking Add authentication button. If the email you add is associated with an institution or organization, the authenticated information we receive from them will be listed here. A single authentication will be used by organizations to verify your identity when you apply for membership.

Data sources

To allow you to import your data from wherever it resides, Redivis supports multiple integrations with outside services.

Redivis will only ever read data from these sources; it will never modify or overwrite content. Additionally, Redivis will only access and transfer content when you specify a location in one of those sources as part of the data upload process.

API tokens

You can create and manage tokens here for working with the Redivis API. See the API documentation for more information.

Compute credits and billing

You can use compute credits to purchase advanced compute environments for notebook nodes within projects.


This tab allows configuration of the following:

  • Contact email: Specify a contact email to receive email notifications for any update to your data access applications. If you apply to access data hosted by an organization, that organization will be able to see your contact email. By default, this is the email you used initially to create your Redivis account.

  • Communications: Allows you to configure email notifications for any update to your data access applications, as well as occasional product update emails regarding changes to Redivis. Note that, if you opt to receive email notifications, you will still see a comprehensive list of notifications in the web platform.

  • Security: Shows all current sessions of Redivis across devices and browsers, and provides the ability to log out of any of these sessions.

  • Delete account: Allows permanent deletion of your account, including all projects you have created.

Note you cannot delete your account if you are the only remaining administrator of an organization, or if you still have any non-deleted datasets.

Stata license

In order to enable Stata notebooks for your account, you can provide your Stata license information here (alternatively, you'll be able to use Stata if one of your organizations provides a license). Specifically, you'll need the license "code", "authorization", and "serial number", which should all have been provided as part of purchasing Stata.

SAS license

In order to enable SAS notebooks for your account, you can provide your license information here (alternatively, you'll be able to use SAS if one of your organizations provides a license). Because of how SAS handles cloud deployments, the steps to enable SAS are a bit more complicated than for Stata. Specifically, you'll need to complete the following steps:

  1. Run SAS Deployment Wizard to install SAS Studio on a supported Linux 64-bit operating system. During the installation, change the default location for the SAS Studio installation to /usr/local/SASHome.

  2. For details about how to install SAS Studio, refer to the installation and configuration instructions provided by the product.

  3. Create a TAR file that includes the SASHome directory:

    tar -czvf SASHome.tar.gz /usr/local/SASHome

Once this tar file has been created, please reach out to to share the file so that we can enable SAS for your account.
