Permission delegation

It is possible to grant some platform-wide permissions to certain users. To do so, you need to create some user groups, then grant permissions to these user groups.

Creation of a new delegation

There are various permissions to be granted. However, think wisely about the people to be granted these rights. With a great power come great responsibilities!


What it grants

Global Mediawiki Administrator

Grants Mediawiki administration rights in every projects

Global Tracker Administrator

Grants Tracker administration rights in every projects

Platform administration

Grants site administrator rights. Users of this delegation will have an “Administration” tab in the navigation bar.

REST projects management

Grants the right to create / suspend / activate projects through the REST API

Retrieve User Membership Information

Grants the right to know which group any user belongs to.

See information about system events through the REST API.

Grants the right to query GET /system_events on the REST API

User Management

Grants the right to manage users: change the status, the username, etc,.. through the REST API

REST Read only administrator

Grants the right to browse the whole REST API as a read only platform administrator. Assigned user(s) should only be used with the REST API as it will induce inconsistent behaviour with the Web UI.


A security prevents you to remove the user group containing the last Platform administration permission or you might be unable to access the platform administration anymore.
