UQ Research Data Manager

Provides information about how to use the UQ Research Data Manager (UQRDM) to store and manage research data for research projects.

Using UQRDM Cloud

The UQRDM cloud web interface can be accessed by both approved UQ and external collaborators linked to a UQRDM project. 

To access the web interface, enter this address: using any of the following web browsers: 

- Mozilla Firefox (14+) 

- Google Chrome/Chromium (18+) 

- Safari (7+) 

- Microsoft Edge 

UQ users

Login with your UQ username and password. Access is available via Single Sign On

External collaborators

External, or non-UQ, collaborators should login using the same authentication method used to join the UQRDM project record. This will be either your institutional login or Linked login.

Note: There may be up to a 2 hour delay for external collaborators to access their allocation folder via the cloud. If your external collaborators experience a delay longer than this, please contact ITS Support.


When logging in for the first time you will see a pop up prompting you to download the sync client application. To get rid of this message - press the "escape" button or click outside the pop up. If you wish to use the sync client for working with files offline and via the Cloud, go to UQRDM cloud sync client. 

Once logged in, your storage allocation will be shown with labels in the format 6-20 alpha numeric characters, and underscores e.g. ACID_LAKES_2023. 

You can create folders and upload files in the storage allocations.


You can use the "share" function to share folders or files.  


The UQRDM cloud web interface provides the option to share folders and files with people that are not listed as "collaborators" on the record. There is also the ability to control access permissions (e.g. read-only access) using this sharing functionality. See more information on how to use this functionality on the sharing by email or link using UQRDM cloud page. 

Note: the "share" function is disabled if the type of storage allocation is for "identifiable human data".
