For Admins

Partial Wiki XAR Export

You can now do a partial export of your wiki from the wiki administration by selecting the pages you wish to export from a tree.

Sorry, your browser doesn't support embedded videos.

Orphaned Dependencies Cleanup

A new step has been added to the Distribution Wizard right after the Flavor step. Its job is to make sure no orphaned dependency (extension installed as dependency but which don't have any backward dependency left) is left in the installed extensions. The step suggests to uninstall the invalid ones by default and make the others top level extensions (i.e. taken into account by the upgrade job). Among other things, it fixes long standing problems caused by deprecated extensions no longer included in the Standard Flavor, like the Watchlist UI.

Allow to disable authentication security mechanism

In order to avoid any problem in the future with the Authentication Security that we recently introduced, we created a dedicated UI to easily disable/enable this mechanism. Note that disabling the authentication security will also clear the information about login failures, which might unlock users in case of problems.

    • xwiki.cfg
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
