News, Updates & Tips

State Data Portal to Use Single Sign-On (SSO)

The State Data Portal will implement single sign-on for state employees next Tuesday (July 6, 2021). The portal will use the State of Iowa's identify and access management tool (aka Okta) which provides a safe and secure way to log into multiple applications used by State government without having to maintain different passwords. More information will be provided to individuals with user accounts on the State Data Portal once implemented. So, stay tuned.

New Exploration Canvas

support.socrata.com

There is a new beta exploration canvas available on the state data portal (internal only) for agency staff with an account. The experience will allow you to filter and group columns, join datasets, write custom queries and more in a easy to use interface. This canvas will replace the existing grid view and provide a new way to explore tabular data and create derived views. Give it a try. Please note, this is available in our internal site, and new derived view created using the exploration canvas cannot yet be federated to the public portal.

Export Tables from within Stories

support.socrata.com

Data is now more accessible with a direct way for users to export and download data, especially filtered data, from tables within Stories. This functionality empowers story users to answer questions, gain insights, and make data-driven decisions by removing barriers to accessing the data they need when and where they need it.
