Step 5: Creating new users

Last modified by Vincent Massol on 2023/10/10

This page describes how you can create new users from within XWiki. If you're looking for LDAP integration, please give a look to this page instead.

Create a new user in your wiki

Now that your wiki has a brand new logo, updated colors and great panels, it's time to add a couple of users:

  • Go to Administration > Users & Rights > Users
  • Click “Create user”
  • Fill in the fields and click "Save"

Your new user has been created!
You can remove the user by clicking on the red "X" located next to the "Last name" in the "Manage" column - should you wish to do so.


Manage user groups in your wiki

Now that you have created a couple of users, you can add them to groups to manage them more easily:

  • Go to Administration > Users & Rights >Groups
  • Click on "Add group"
  • Fill the group name and click on “Create group"

Now that you have created your group, you will want to also add users to it:

  • Click on the small pencil located to the right of your group's name in the "Manage" column
  • In the “Users to add” field, start typing the name of an user
  • Select the user of your choice from the suggestion list that starts appearing below the input field
  • Click on "Add"

Once you've finished adding users to the group, click on the "X" button located top right.
Your users are now group members!
