Sharing Arrays

You can share a registered array with any other user on TileDB Cloud. Currently, you can specify array-wide policies, such as read, write and read/write. We plan to add finer-grained access policies soon. To share an array, click on Arrays in the header menu, then on the My arrays folder in the left side menu, and then select the array you would like to share from the list.

On the array details page, click on Sharing in the left side menu and then on button Add Member. A pop up will appear prompting you to provide the username of the user you are sharing this array with (auto-complete is supported to discover existing usernames) and the access policy.

The added member will appear in the array members list, where you will be able to change the access policy or revoke access from the user.

When sharing an array with other users, you do not get charged for the accesses that those users make. You only get charged for the accesses that you make on your arrays.

When adding a member, TileDB Cloud uses auto-complete to facilitate finding a username you are looking for. Similar to GitHub/GitLab, the usernames are considered public information (in contrast to full names and emails that are protected). Please email us at if you wish your username to be excluded from auto-complete.
