Find answers to common questions about using Mediawiki at Evergreen


Question: Is access to the Wiki like Canvas, where the students all have to be added, or is it open to anyone who’s logged in with an Evergreen ID?

Answer: We support both public and private wikis. By default, Evergreen wikis are setup to require an Evergreen login to edit but publicly viewable. When a user logs in they are automatically added to the wiki with the role ‘user’ which has read and edit privileges. If needed, we can lock down the wiki so that users will need to be added to an ‘editors’ group to edit, or locked down even further so that only ‘editors’ have read and write privileges. The process of adding users to the editor group is a manual one so we only do this if content absolutely needs to be private.
