  • To create a new user group or rename/delete a user group for your space, use the Custom Space User Management option in Space Tools.

  • New user group: click on "Create Group".

  • Name your user group: please note that your user group name is automatically prefixed by your Wiki Space's key

  • After your user group is newly-created, it will appear under your list of groups for your space.
  • Grant permission to the newly-created group via Space Tools > Permissions. Permissions granted to the user group will apply to all users in the user group.

Please note that granting permissions to user groups works similarly to granting permissions to individuals.

  • You may also use a known user group in your wiki space by typing the group name within 'Groups'. 

For example: If you know that the members of the group demospace-editor need access to your wiki space, you may use this group in your wiki space.  Note that you can only maintain a user group within the wiki space that created it (in this example, demospace-editor members can only be maintained within the Wiki Demonstration Space where it was created).

  • To add individual users in the user group, select the user-group name on the left side of the page and then, click on "Add User".

  • To remove user/users, select the user-group name on the left side of the page then select the name of the user you want to remove from the group, then click on "Remove user".

  • To rename or delete user group, click on the appropriate button on the page.
