Help:User rights and user groups
|Table of Contents|
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.
- 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.12
- The right should only be granted to users that require database and DB table access
Editing system message "MediaWiki:Smw allows pattern"
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" 3 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)
