Access to more information on SOAR data
The SOAR implements the TAP protocol of the International Virtual Observatory Alliance (https://www.ivoa.net). This is a powerful protocol yet safe way to access more details on the data contents and structure of the metadata from Solar Orbiter. It might be useful for users that are more technically knowledgeable and want to make more complicated programmatic queries to the contents of the archive. There is ample information on the TAP access of SOAR in the SOAR "Programmatic access" pages (http://soar.esac.esa.int/soar/#aio). Here, we describe how to use an external client (TOPCAT) to get more details about the contents of the SOAR.
A video on how to access the TOPCAT client to see all SOAR DB information can be seen here (in low resolution to save bandwidth; probably good enough as it has audio information, otherwise, get the same video in higher resolution below):

Private access data
The SOAR hosts products which are used by the PIs to interchange data among them for calibration purposes or even for internal matters within one PI and the corresponding collaborators. Currently, CDAG (Calibration Data Access Group) and "MAG Private" groups are defined.
To access those data, you only have to make sure to login into the SOAR application at the top rightmost part of the screen "SIGN IN":
Once logged in, if you are member of a group that can access protectede data, you will be able to select it from the search menu, as in the image where in the "Include also" section, there are now two new checkboxes for "CDAG" and "MAG Private" data:
Access to this data are granted by the PIs. If you think you should have the right to access those, either contact the relevant PI or send an email to the SOAR Archive Scientist (currently yours truly, Pedro.Osuna at esa.int) who will contact the relevant people to check and take eventual actions.
