These instructions assume you're using XWiki 1.2 or later with the Colibri, Albatross or Toucan skins (screenshots for Colibri).

Adding groups to your wiki

  1. Log in as an administrator
  2. Hover over "Wiki" and click on "Administer Wiki"
  3. Click on the "Groups" link to bring up an overview of all the groups
  4. Click on the "Add new group" button to open the group creation lightbox as shown on the image below
  5. Fill in the group name
  6. Click the "Create Group" button

Editing an existing group

  1. Log in as an administrator
  2. Hover over "Wiki" and click on "Administer Wiki"
  3. Click on the "Groups" link to bring up an overview of all the groups
  4. You have two options:
    1. Click the group name for the group you want to edit
      • On the group page click "Edit" in the top left corner (this will open a page where you can edit the members of the group (if any))
    2. Click on the small yellow pencil near the group you want to edit (this will open a lightbox with the members of that group)
  5. Here's how you can add a new user to the group:
    • Start typing the user's name in the "Users to add" input field. After starting to type, if the user exists, a suggest feature will be displayed, containing a list of all the users whose names contain the typed letters, so you can select the user you want from that list
    • Click "Add"
  6. Here's how you can add a subgroup to the current group:
    • Start typing the group's name in the "Subgroups to add" input field. After starting to type, if the group exists, a suggest feature will be displayed, containing a list of all the groups whose names contain the typed letters, so you can select the group you want from that list
    • Click "Add"
  7. You can delete a user or a group by clicking on the red "X" button as shown below:

Deleting an existing group

  1. Log in as an administrator
  2. Hover over "Wiki" and click on "Administer Wiki"
  3. Click on the "Groups" link to bring up an overview of all the groups
  4. Delete the group by clicking on the red "X" button for the group you wish to delete

    When you delete a group, the users or groups in that group are not deleted. If you also want to delete the members of the group, you will have to delete them manually from the Users and the Groups pages.

Modify the number of groups displayed in the list

This is valid as of v3.5 (I think it works on any 3.x version).

You have to edit XWiki.AdminGroupsSheet for groups.

The page contains a line like this:

var ta = new XWiki.widgets.LiveTable("$url", "groupstable", callback);

Just replace it with:

var ta = new XWiki.widgets.LiveTable("$url", "groupstable", callback, {limit: 100});

where 100 is the number of items displayed per page.
