Web Permissions Plugin

This plugin provides a centralised interface to TWiki permissions that are applied on a web level.

The idea is to present web permissions as a matrix that has columns of webs and rows of users. For each web, you can control which users can view or change that web. All user webs, every registered user (except admin users), and every group (except admin groups) are shown in the matrix.

Viewing Editing

This control model is very useful in cases such as a web per project environment. In this case you will probably want to give team members change access to the specific projects they are working on. The plugin gives you a simple, one page interface, for handling these permissions.

The plugin tries very hard to keep the permissions specification you started with. It reads and writes web preferences topics only. Note that topic level permissions still work as normal.

THIS PLUGIN REQUIRES TWiki-4.0.0 or later

Syntax Rules

The permissions matrix can be viewed (and edited) by entering %WEBPERMISSIONS% anywhere in a topic. You have to have admin rights (be a member of TWikiAdminGroup) to view/edit the matrix.

If you have admin rights and the plugin is installed, you will see the matrix below:


Plugin Settings

  • One line description, is shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = View and edit web permissions

By default, the plugin only supports VIEW and CHANGE permissions on webs. You can change the set of access modes handled by the plugin by defining a configuration variable (in LocalSite.cfg) to be a comma-separated list of access modes. For example,

$TWiki::cfg{Plugins}{WebPermissionsPlugin}{modes} = 'VIEW,CHANGE,RENAME';
See TWikiAccessControls for more information on what access modes can be used to control.
