Managing Datasets in OSF for Drupal (Screencast)

In this new screencast, I first introduce the concept of a dataset: what it is, what it is used for and how it works. I will also outline the characteristics of datasets in the Open Semantic Framework (OSF) such as having a set of permissions for group of users, a unique identifier, etc.

Then I explain how datasets are being used by OSF for Drupal, and how they can be managed using a Drupal portal: how to import, create, register, change permissions to datasets. Then I explain how datasets can become searchable using the SearchAPI or be disabled in the web portal.

Finally I cover the OSF Entities administrators search and browse utility which can be used by Drupal administrators to browse and search for all entities that are accessible to the Drupal portal: even the ones that are indexed in datasets that are not yet registered to the portal.
