TAKING OWNERSHIP OF AN ITEM AND ITS DATASET AS INFODBA

Is there a way to do that? I want to assign infodba as owner of some items just to "protect" them. I can change ownership by login as the owner but it takes me a lot of time and I would like to have a quicker way.

You're on the fastest path for one offs. You can do a bunch at the same time if you implement Live Excel which adds its own complications.

Select the items along with the item revisions/datasets, Edit > Change Ownership. Select the new owning user from Organization Selection Dialog. By this you can transfer the ownership of folders also (Not applicable for psuedo folders).

The change ownership command fails. I think it is because infodba has no rights to change ownership of items or datasets from a different group.

I used Workflow Designer to create a Take Ownership WF.  Highlighting a bunch of Item amd running the WF does that for me.
