GDPR Plugin - Project Metadata update

NN Neuron, Registered, Neuron 2022, Neuron 2023 Posts: 143 Neuron

Hi Team,
We have the GDPR plugin installed in our dataiku instance.
We also have a custom project creation macro in place which users use to create their projects.

We were trying to see if it was feasible to update the projects GDPR metadata fields during project creation itself.
example :

admin_client = utils.get_admin_dss_client("creation1", user_auth_info)
project_ad = admin_client.get_project(project_key)
metadata = project_ad.get_metadata()
metadata['customFields']['gdpr_forbid_dataset_sharing'] = True

The challenge is that we have given permissions to only users who are part of the administrators group to be able to edit gdpr metadata.

And when we try to use the admin privilege api key derived during project creation to update the metadata it gives a "gdpr policies forbid you to edit metadata" error.

If anyone has tried something similar or has any suggestions on how to resolve this then please do guide.

    Hi !
    I am sure you already found a solution, but in case somebody else would try to achieve the same thing, you can indeed take advantage of the temporary admin privileges.

    admin_client = utils.get_admin_dss_client("creation1", user_auth_info)
    # get a gdpr admin identity
    rgpd_admin = admin_client.get_user("gdpr_admin")
    rgpd_admin_client = rgpd_admin.get_client_as()
    # back to your script
    project_ad = rgpd_admin_client .get_project(project_key)
    metadata = project_ad.get_metadata()
    metadata['customFields']['gdpr_forbid_dataset_sharing'] = True

    There it is !
