Hi, I would like to use galaxy to analyse my transcriptomic data, but I am concerning about the data privacy before publication. I would like to know if the data can kept in a private project/workspace until the data is published? Would the data be released without notice?

When using the public Main Galaxy server at, data in your account is private unless or until that specific object is shared or published (or permissions are granted - click on the pencil icon to reach "Edit Attributes -> Permissions" to view any associated permissions). Many users create data for publication (including our team) in accounts, then only share/publish specific objects (datasets, histories, workflows, visualizations, pages) later on.

This is the default behavior for Galaxy (local, cloudman). If you are using another public Galaxy server hosted by a 3rd party, check with the administrator to ensure that this is the method also implemented at that site.

Best, Jen, Galaxy team
