You can decide on the visibility of individual records in Pure. There are different visibility statuses that can be set. To change the visibility click on the relevant record and the record editing window will open. Scroll down to the bottom of the editing widow to the Visibility section.
Personal information in Pure is brought in from the University HR system. When you log into Pure you will see that various personal information about you is displayed, such as historical job role information and start dates for your organisation affiliation. This information can only be seen only by you and a limited number of other people (e.g. high level Pure administrators).
The Pure web site - Explore Bristol Research - promotes Bristol research and the people who carry out that research. The only personal information about you that will automatically be displayed on the web site is your name, job title, organisation affiliations, and contact details similar to the University contact directory. You can add other page information including a photo and profile description.
Change the visibility setting as necessary. Remember to save the record in order to apply the new visibility setting.
The default visibility setting for research outputs is Public - visible on the Explore Bristol Research web site. Legacy IRIS records that were marked as sensitive in IRIS have been transferred to Pure with the visibility status of Sensitive - only visible to users logged into Pure.
The default visibility setting for projects is Sensitive - only visible to users logged into Pure. Therefore projects will not automatically be displayed on the Explore Bristol Research web site but will be visible only to University of Bristol staff who are logged in to Pure.
The content type Applications / Funding works slightly differently to other Pure content types. Although the default setting for all applications and funding records is Sensitive - only visible to users logged into Pure the information is not visible or searchable to University of Bristol staff who are logged in to Pure. This information will never be displayed on the Explore Bristol Research web site and will only be visible in Pure to you and high-level University Pure administrators.
The default status of impacts in Pure is Sensitive - only visible to users logged into Pure. Impact records will not be displayed on the the web site but will be visible to University users of Pure who are logged into the system.
If a particular record is so sensitive that it cannot even be viewed by Pure users within the University it may be appropriate for it to be excluded from Pure altogether. If you have such content please contact Lesley Dinsdale, Head of Research and Enterprise Policy (Lesley.Dinsdale@bristol.ac.uk)
