View An Explanation of Wiki Users to understand the University of Iowa's users.
As a Space Administrator, you have the responsibility of setting and maintaining appropriate permissions for your wiki. You can give a variety of permissions to individuals, groups, or allow anonymous access. The purpose of your wiki will often necessitate how open or closed your space will be.
While many permission levels exist, most needs will be met with View, Add Pages, and Add Comments permissions.
Anonymous Access: It is not recommended to allow anonymous creation of content (comments, pages, or blogs). Any individual can create a wiki account, so we recommend using 'confluence-users' (mentioned above) to allow open access to your wiki. This will allow better tracking of revisions and blocking of unwanted users.
Add a user by typing the individual's name. You will see a dropdown list of options as you type.
Only users who have signed in to the wiki will be available. If you do not see the individual, please contact them and ask them to sign in to the wiki.
Use the checkboxes to select the appropriate permissions. Use the Select All link at the beginning of the row to select or de-select all checkboxes.
Note: To remove a user, deselect all checkboxes.
