Activity Macro

The {{activity /}} macro used by the Activity Stream UI is bundled with XWiki Standard and it allows you to keep better track of what is happening in the wiki or the farm. The displayed notifications include:

  • page creation
  • page edit
  • page delete
  • comments and annotations events
  • attachments events
  • the posts shared with other users via the {{shareMessage /}} macro
  • wiki join/leave events
  • wiki invitation events


You can either edit the page in "Wiki" mode and add the below line or insert the macro using the Wysiwyg editor.

{{activity entries="<entries>" subentries="<subentries>" wikis="<wikis>" spaces="<spaces>" authors="<authors>" tags="<tags>"
minor="<true|false>" rss="<true|false>"/}}
