Managing your settings

You can manage your profile, services, integrations, and notifications while logged in to Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.

Manage your profile

You can manage your profile on the Profile page by clicking your avatar in the banner and then clicking Profile and settings.

You can make these changes to your profile:

  • Add or change your avatar photo.
  • Change your IBMid or password. Do not change your IBMid (email address) after you register with the Cloud Pak for Data as a Service platform. The IBMid (email address) uniquely identifies users in the platform and also authorizes access to various Cloud Pak for Data as a Service resources, including projects, spaces, models, and catalogs. If you change your IBMid (email address) in your IBM Cloud profile after you have registered with Cloud Pak for Data as a Service, you will lose access to the platform and associated resources.
  • Set your service locations filters by resource group and location. The filters apply throughout the platform. For example, the Service instances page that you access through the Services menu shows only the filtered services. Ensure you have selected the region where Watson Studio is located, for example, Dallas, as well as the Global location. Global is required to provide access to your IBM Cloud Object Storage instance.
  • Set your Cloud Pak for Data as a Service user interface to dark theme. Click your avatar and select Profile and settings to open your account profile. Then, set the Dark theme switch to on. Dark theme is not supported in RStudio and Jupyter notebooks.
  • Access your IBM Cloud account.
  • Leave Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.

Switch accounts

If you are added to a shared IBM Cloud account that is different from your individual account, you can switch your account by selecting a different account from the account list in the menu bar, next to your avatar.

Manage your integrations

To set up or modify an integration to GitHub:

  1. Click your avatar in the banner.
  2. Click Profile and settings.
  3. Click the Git integrations tab.

See Publish notebooks on GitHub.

Manage your notification settings

To see your notification settings, click the notification bell icon and then click the settings icon.

You can make these changes to your notification settings:

  • Specify to receive push notifications that appear briefly on screen. If you select Do not disturb, you continue to see notifications on the home page and the number of notifications on the bell.
  • Specify to receive notifications by email.
  • Specify for which projects or spaces you receive notifications.

View and personalize your project summary

Use the Overview page of a project to view a summary of what's happening in your project. You can jump back into your most recent work and keep up to date with alerts, tasks, project history, and compute usage.

View recent asset activity in the Assets pane on the Overview page, and filter the assets by selecting By you or By all using the dropdown. Selecting By you lists assets edited by you, ordered by most recent at the top. Selecting By all lists assets edited by others and also by you, ordered by most recent at the top.

You can use the readme file on the Overview page to document the status or results of the project. The readme file uses standard Markdown formatting. Collaborators with the Admin or Editor role can edit the readme file.
