BlueSpicePermissionManager offers an easy and user-friendy way to manage user permissions on the wiki.

PermissionManager is for managing rights or permissions at a group and namespace level:

  • Assignment of permissions to a user group.
  • Display of permissions inherited from groups in the permissions hierarchy.
  • Display of permissions blocked by another group.
  • Assignment of permissions on a wiki level (applies to all pages in all namespaces) and on per-namespace basis, meaning that a user group can have certain permission in one namespace but still be denied the same permission in another namespace.

Some aspects of this extension can be configured on Special:BlueSpiceConfigManager, under section "Permission manager". Here wiki administrators can configure:

  • Backup limit: Defines, how many backups, which are created everytime the permission settings are saved, are stored.
