The extension PermissionManager allows an easy and convenient management of usergroup rights.

Usage / features


PermissionManager is used for managing rights or permissions at a group and namespace level:

  • Assignment of permissions to a user group.
  • Display of permissions inherited from groups higher in the hierarchy.
  • Display of permissions blocked by another group.
  • Assignment of permissions on a wiki level (applies to all pages in all namespaces) and on a per-namespace basis. A user group can have certain permission in one namespace but still be denied the same permission in another namespace.
  • Creation of permission templates - a set of predefined permissions that can be easily assigned to any number of user groups.
