If you are a wiki Administrator you can add an account to an access group. Access groups can be setup in advance by a System Administrator.

Create Account

  • Make sure the user has logged in at least once to create their account


  • Create an account for the user at Special Pages > Login/Create Account > Create Account
  • Enter their Evergreen username and a fake password. (Note: the password you set here will be ignored when the user logs in via CAS, they will use their Evergreen login and password)

Add User to Group

  1. Login to the wiki (you'll need to be a member of the Administrators group)
  2. Go to Special Pages > Userrights and enter the username of the person to be added (Note: if you're not sure you can also go to Special Pages > User List to see a listing of everyone's that has logged into the site.)
  3. From the Available Groups column select the group the user should be added to.
  4. Click the Save User Groups button to apply
