TWiki Groups

These groups can be used to define fine grained AccessControl in Foswiki:

  • New Group:  
    • warning Note: A group topic name must be a WikiWord and must end in ...Group. New topics are based on GroupTemplate

IMPORTANT NOTE: Think twice before restricting write access to a web or a topic, because an open system where everybody can contribute is the essence of WikiCulture. Experience shows that unrestricted write access works very well because:
  • There is enough peer pressure to post only appropriate content.
  • Content does not get lost because topics are under revision control.
  • A topic revision can be undone by a member of the AdminGroup if necesssary.
