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:

  • Click on the "Wiki" menu located in the top left side of your page, click "Administer Wiki" 
  • Click on the "Users" button
  • At the bottom of the page, click on "Add new user"
  • Fill the fields and click on "Save"
  • Your new user has been created! 
  • You can remove the user by clicking on the red cross 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 affect them to groups to manage them more easily:

  • Click on the "Wiki" menu located in the top left side of your page, click "Administer Wiki"
  • Click on the "Groups" button
  • At the bottom of the page, click on "Add new group"
  • Fill the field and click on "Create group"
  • Now that you group exists, you will want to add users to the group
    • Click on the small pencil located to the right of your group's name in the "Manage" column
    • In the "Add new user" field, start typing the name of an user
    • Select the user of your choice from the drop-down suggestion list that starts appearing below the input field
    • Click on "Add"
    • Once you're done adding users to this group, click on the "X" button located top right
    • Your users are now group members!
You can find more information about managing users and groups in your wiki on XWiki.org.
