$smwgAdminFeatures is a configuration parameter that sets which administrative features may be used via special page special page "SemanticMediaWiki" allowing fine grained control. The setting was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 2.5.01 and deprecated the configuration parameter $smwgAdminRefreshStoreSets whether it is possible to set up the database tables or to initiate the repairing or updating of all semantic data of wiki using the interface on special page "SemanticMediaWiki" which should be migrated to this configuration setting since it will be removed with the release of Semantic MediaWiki 3.1.0 in mid 2018.2

Default setting


This means that by default all users who are administrators (user group "sysop") or Semantic MediaWiki administrators (user group "smwadministrator") may use all features available.

Available options

Changing the default setting

To modify this configuration setting, add one of the following lines to your "LocalSettings.php" file after the enableSemantics() call:

Removing a specific administrative function

To remove a specific administrative function e.g. the ability to initiate the repairing or updating of all semantic data on the wiki, just exclude the respective constant as shown just above:



$smwgAdminFeatures = $smwgAdminFeatures & ~SMW_ADM_REFRESH;
Removing all administrative functions

To remove all administrative features just remove all constants as shown above:

$smwgAdminFeatures = '';

Preventing access to special page "SemanticMediaWiki"

To achieve this the user right "smw-admin" has to removed from the wiki administrators (user group "sysop") and additionally no user should be assigned to be a Semantic MediaWiki administrator (user group "smwadministrator"). This will additionally prevent the display of operational statistics and of configuration settings.
