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.

Can I change the UQ lead and owner on a record?

Yes. The project owner or project lead roles can be changed and updated at any time. Only the record owner or UQ lead has the authority to make this change. In fact, should either leave UQ they must update the project record to include a new UQRDM project lead or owner. See how to change the record owner or UQ lead.

I want to change the Owner of my record from my staff account to my student account (HDRs)

First ensure that both your student account and staff accounts are listed on the project record.  If not you will need to add your student account as a new collaborator on your project, and activate that account.

You can then make your student account the project record Owner by clicking the three vertical dots and selecting "Make Owner".  See how to change the record owner or UQ lead.

Can I delete my project record?

You can delete a UQRDM project record where no storage has been provisioned. Usually this means the record is incomplete, or has not been approved (pending approval) by the UQ Lead.

  1. Go to UQRDM dashboard.
  2. Open the incomplete or pending approval record. Only Project Owners and Project Leads can delete records.


3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Remove Record



The record will be removed from UQRDM, and will not be found in either your R:/ drive or via the cloud interface.


If you wish to remove an active record with data stored, take the following steps.

1. Confirm that you are authorised to delete the record. Check with either your HDR Supervisor or Project Lead.

2. Move any remaining files, documents or data out of the project storage allocation and save to another appropriate location. 

3. Contact ITS Help ( to request your UQRDM project record be deleted. Include the project ID and reason for deleting.

4. Your storage will be removed. Anything still stored there will be deleted. The remaining, unwanted UQRDM project record will be deleted.
