TWik iAccess Control

Controlling access on the SIte level

  • To edit a topic a user will be asked to login using the CERN account

Controlling access to a Web

We administrators can define restrictions on who is allowed to view a TWiki web. You can use TWikiUsers, TWikiGroups and egroups. egroups are the preferred method.

  • You can define these settings in the WebPreferences topic, preferable towards the end of the topic:
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWWEBVIEW = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set DENYWEBRENAME = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWWEBRENAME = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >

  • All new TWiki webs at CERN are created with the following settings:
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW = TWikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBVIEW =
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE = TWikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = TWikiAdminGroup
    • Set DENYWEBRENAME = TWikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBRENAME =

Controlling access to a Topic

  • You can define these settings in any topic, preferable towards the end of the topic:
    • Set DENYTOPICVIEW = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWTOPICVIEW = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set DENYTOPICCHANGE = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set DENYTOPICRENAME = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >
    • Set ALLOWTOPICRENAME = < comma-delimited list of Users and Groups >

For example, set this to restrict a topic to be viewable only by the MarketingExecGroup:
