Edit a Global Group

You may edit a global group only from the main wiki. To do so, log in as administrator, click the DrawerMenuIcon.png button which opens the drawer menu, then on "Administer Wiki".

In the wiki preferences page, click on the "Groups" link to bring up an overview of all groups.

At this point you have two options:

  • Click on the group name then edit the page in "Inline form" mode to display the group members (if any).

  • Click on the pencil icon in the "Manage" column of the livetable which will open a lightbox with the group members.

Add Users to a Group

For both options you can add a new user to the group by typing the username in the input below "Users to Add". After starting to type, if the user exists, the suggest feature will help you by displaying the list of all occurrences, so you can select from them. 

The User Picker displays the user avatar and a link to the user profile and it also allows you to add multiple users in one step.

Since for an XWiki group multiple selection is enabled by default, each selected user is added to a temporary list above the picker.

To remove an user from the list, just hover it and click on the red "X" in the top right corner. You may remove all users at once by clicking on the "Clear selection" link.

Once you are done creating the list, click on "Add" and the new users will also appear in the livetable.

Add Subgroups to a Group

You can add an entire group to the current group. This can be done by typing the group name in the input below "Subgroups to Add" then by selecting the group from the suggested list. 

The Group Picker allows you to add multiple subgroups in one step. The group alias is the name of the group document, the group name is the title of the group document and the group avatar is the first image attached to the group document.

If multiple selection is enabled, each selected subgroup is added to a temporary list above the picker.

To remove a subgroup from the list, just hover it and click on the red "X" in the top right corner. You may remove all subgroups at once by clicking on the "Clear selection" link.

Once you are done creating the list of new subgroups, click on "Add" and they will also appear in the livetable.

Also, in case an user or a group is deleted from the wiki, it will be automatically removed from all the groups it was a member of.
