Technical information

Configuration

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": [
				"user",
				"group",
				"everyone"
			]
},

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.


Exclude users from page assignment "everyone"
Exclude users from page assignment "everyone"

Rights (permissions)

Pages can only be assigned to users with the pageassignable permission (by default, this right is assigned to the reader, editor and author roles). Only users with pageassignments permission can assign pages to others (by default, this right is assigned to the reviewer, admin and maintenanceadmin roles).

Requirements

PageAssignments requires BlueSpiceFoundation.
