What is BlueSpicePageAccess?

BlueSpicePageAccess restricts access to a page to specified user groups. It is inserted with the tag pageaccess. Access restriction per page is done on a group basis. "Access" here means all actions, including read and edit.


To add this tag with VisualEditor:

  1. Position the cursor at the beginning of your page.
  2. Select Insert > Magic word.
  3. Select Page access in the dialog box.
  4. Click Done.
  5. Add the groups to the Page access dialog box.
  6. Click Insert.

The page now shows an info header that shows the groups that have access.

In source view, the tag looks like this:

 <bs:pageaccess groups="sysop" /> 

To add more groups, use commas to separate:

 <bs:pageaccess groups="sysop,secure1,secure2" />

A user can only restrict access to the groups this user belongs to. This is a security feature to prevent users from locking themselves out of a page.
