How to Give a User Access
Accessible to anyone, no login required
Anonymous Access is turned on ('Anonymous' has at least View permissions in the space)
No action necessary. Access is granted to all users, regardless of whether they are logged in.
Accessible to all Wiki@UCSF users who are logged in
The 'confluence-users' group has at least View permissions in the space
Make sure the user can log in to Wiki@UCSF (see Wiki Login section below). Any user who can log in is a member of the 'confluence-users' group and will be able to see your space.
Accessible only to certain Wiki@UCSF users you select
Only groups (not including 'confluence-users') and individual users have permissions in the space
First, make sure the user can log in to the wiki Wiki@UCSF (see Wiki Login section below). Then, add the user to a group or give individual user permissions (see Managing Permissions section below).
In your space, go to the Browse menu (top right) and select Space Admin. Then select the Permissions link on the left side menu . There you'll see a list of all the types of users who can to see the groups and individuals with permission to access your space. To change permissions:
- Click the Edit Permissions button
- Check/uncheck boxes depending on which permissions you want the usergroup/group individual to have
- Click the Save All button (or the Cancel button if you don't want to save your changes)
Basically, if you want a usergroup/group individual to be able to only view content, check the View box. If you want the usergroup/group individual to be able to add and edit content, check the Add box for each type of content (Pages, News, Comments, etc.).
If a user is a member of a group that has access to your space, then he/she will be able to access your space. You can manage your own groups by clicking the Manage Users/Groups tab. This option is recommended if you want to be able to change permissions for a large number of users in a single clickat the same time. For more information, see Managing Your Own Groups.
Instead of using groups, you can give individual users permissions in your space. This option is recommended if you don't have that many a lot of users, or you want to give different permissions to different users different permissions.
If you turn on Anonymous Access, then your space will be visible to the public, no login required. If you want your space to be public, we recommend giving only View and Add Comment permissions to anonymous users. Also, never give Space Admin permission to anonymous users.
