This plugin allows wiki admins to manage their registered users. It provides facilities for:
The user manager works with a variety of different authorization backends, they tell it whether certain functions (e.g. user editing) are available and it adjusts its user interface accordingly. At present the user manager does not provide any validation of data used to create new users or modify existing users.
The management of access control lists for individual pages and namespaces are handled by the ACL plugin.
The User Manager is accessible from the admin screen (Login as superuser, click “Admin” and choose “User Management”).
Add an user by filling the
Add User form. Be sure you provided a password or check
Notify user checkbox, otherwise addition fails.
Editing an user can be done in the
Edit User form that appears when you click on the username in the User List.
