How to stop making my collection public

This article helps you achieve one of the following options:

Unpublish collection

  • To perform this action, you need to have Editor access to the collection to unpublish the collection. If you do not have Editor access to the collection, refer to our Sensitive Data Removal Policy.

    Note: Use the search bar to find out where the collection to unpublish is located.
  2. Go to the collection you want to unpublish.
  3. Select View complete collection documentation at the bottom of the documentation tab on the right panel.
  4. Select on Published > Edit published documentation > Unpublish.
