Share Query Results

By default all query results are private, viewable only to the query creator. You can make your results visible to everyone or share with a specific user.

There are three ways to change the privacy settings of your query results:

  • Sharing from within Compose

  • Sharing on the execution results catalog page

  • Publishing the query

Sharing Query Results in Compose

In Compose, click More > Share in the Results tab.
