How do I create a personal wiki space and give access to it?

Please note that only members of UCL staff can create personal spaces.

  • Once you are logged on, you should see your name, top right as a link on the UCL Wiki homepage. Click on this link.
  • On the page that appears, you should see a message saying You can create a personal space to keep your own pages and news. Click on the create a personal space link.
  • Now you need to set the viewing and editing rights for your space by clicking any of the Edit Permissions links. Either type in UCL user ids (followed by comma space if there are several) or use the magnifying glass button to search for users by name.
    By default personal spaces are only viewable by the person concerned, and global spaces are only viewable by the administrators of the spaces concerned.
    Note: Registered users - anyone logged into Confluence has no effect in the UCL implementation of the software.
    If you want all registered users to have access, you have explicitly to give access to group ucl-all. ucl-staff, ucl-hon, ucl-ug and ucl-pg are other useful groups. Note the use of the role suffix (e.g. -all) after the hyphen; it would not work if you just used ucl. For detailed information about UCL access groups, see: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/upi/web-users/intranet-groups
    You can add several individuals by typing in user ids separated by comma space.
    Note that the create right is the one you use to give edit access and that you need to give the attach right to people who want to display images.
    Do not give individuals or groups rights they do not need.
    Click Create.
  • If you ever need to adjust the access rights to your space, click on the Browse Space link at the top, click on the Space Admin tab and then click on the Permissions link in the left column.
