This help page gives an overview to the user rights and user groups provided by Semantic MediaWiki.

Accessing special page "Special:SMWAdmin"

Semantic MediaWiki 1.5.1 to Semantic MediaWiki 1.8.0 required users to have the "delete" right to access special page "SMWAdmin". This user right is tied to the "admin" (sysop) group of MediaWiki core by default.

Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.0 introduced the "smw-admin" right to control access to special page "SMWAdmin".

  • This user right is by default tied to the new user group "Administrator (Semantic Mediawiki)" (smwadministrator) and to the "admin" (sysop) group of MediaWiki core by default.CiteRef::gerrit:smw:67988CiteRef::phab:mw:T50840
  • The right should only be granted to users that require database and DB table access

Editing system message "MediaWiki:Smw allows pattern"

Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.0 added the "smw-patternedit" right to limit edit access to the "Smw allows pattern" system message.

  • "smw-patternedit" by default has only be assigned to user group "Curator (Semantic Mediawiki)"
  • This user right was introduced to manage edit permission to "MediaWiki:Smw allows pattern" CiteRef::gh:smw:1417 with the objective to minimize the group of users who can actively add regex patterns (see also the help page on special property "Allows pattern" for further information)
