PageAssignments allows to assign pages to single users or user groups. Assigned users are notified about assignment changes via email or internal notifications.

  • Assign responsible users to a page.
  • Assign individual users or groups.
  • The responsible editor(s) for the page can be viewed in the flyout "Page assignments" in the quality management tools.
  • Users can view their assignments on the page Special:PageAssignments.
  • Users with admin, maintenanceadmin or reviewer rights can manage all assignments on the page Special:ManagePageAssignments.

Display assignments in the title section

The page assignments can be displayed in the title section of the page. Activate this page assignments display in LocalSettings.php (or in the php file in the d.settings folder):

$GLOBALS['bsgBlueSpiceCalummaPageHeaderBeforeContentEnabledProviders'] = [ "pageheader-assignments" ];

Set the limit:

$GLOBALS['bsgPageAssignmentsPageHeaderLimit'] = 25;

Assign all users (with option to exclude some users)

To activate the option to assign all users to a page, a group everyone can be created. For this, the following code needs to be set in <bluepsice-installationpath>/extensions/BlueSpicePageAssignments/extension.json:
"PageAssignmentsActivatedTypes": {
			"value": [
This allows users to add the group everyone to a page assignment. Individual users can be excluded from the assignment by creating the file MediaWiki:PageAssignments-everyone-blacklist. Users can be added to this blacklist with using line breaks.
