Setting user rights

XWiki Enterprise lets you set user rights at the wiki, space and page level. This means that you can control exactly which users are allowed to perform which actions (edit, view or comment on a page):

  • Click on the "Administration" link at the top right of your page
  • Click on the "Rights" button

Setting rights for groups

It's easier to set rights for groups than for every individual user. Thus we recommend you create user groups prior to starting configuring user rights.

XWiki rights work the following way:

  • When all checkboxes are empty, everybody can do everything
  • Once you give a right to an user or a group, everybody else is disallowed this right if their checkbox is empty
