User management is easier for wiki space administrators now that users log in to the wiki with a MyAccess account.

UCSF Accounts

Choose one of the user management approaches below:

Manage my own users with Group permissions

?Recommended if your space has a lot of users (>10) and you want to be able to add/remove users immediately rather than waiting for the Wiki Administrators to respond:

1. Create a User Group

  1. Go to Browse > Manage Users/Groups.
  2. Create a new group by typing a group name in the Add Group box and clicking the Submit button.

2. Add/Remove Group Members

  1. Once a group has been created, click its name to display the group editing options.
  2. Click the Confluence Directory Search link above the Add User input box
  3. Select the Full Name and Contains options, then type the user's name

3. Set/Modify the Permissions for the Group

  1. Go to Browse > Space Admin > Permissions
Manage my own users with Individual User permissions

If there are only a few other people who will be accessing your space, then you can just manage their permissions individually.

Let the Wiki Administrators manage my users for me with Group permissions

Guest Accounts

If you want someone who does not have a UCSF MyAccess account to be able to access your wiki space, the user can request a guest MyAccess account.  The user should:

  1. Go to
  2. Click the 'Request A Guest Account' link
  3. Complete the form, making sure to select Wiki as the Sponsoring Group
  4. Click the Request Account button to submit the request

The user's request will be reviewed by the Wiki Administrator's, and once it is approved, you and the guest will receive notification.
