This guide is based on the similar guide of Helsinki University, http://wiki.helsinki.fi/x/1gw.
First check the rules of TKK wiki service! Then consider whether you need a personal Wiki space or if you want to start administrating a Wiki space shared by, e.g. a workgroup.
The use of a global Wiki space will go more smoothly, if you prepare your Wiki space at first:
Wikipatterns offers clear instructions that facilitate the introduction of a wiki space: http://www.wikipatterns.com
As the creator of the Wiki space you are automatically also the Space Administrator. You can modify the restrictions for viewing the page, but please note the following rules:
To modify space permissions, click Browse Space > Space Admin > Permissions (See picture below - click to enlarge picture).
All spaces are open when created, which means that all registered users ("confluence users") can read and comment on them. If you want access to be restricted only to those with TKK logins, add the group tkk_users, tkk_staff and/or tkk_student. You can remove groups from your space by removing all their access rights.
If you want to delete the entire group, uncheck all the boxes and save!
The user group haka_users consists of reliably identified users whose home organisation is a Finnish school.
It is often necessary to grant permissions separately for each user in a group, especially if you want the wiki space to be restricted, or want to grant certain users more comprehensive rights than to the whole group.
Select the users as follows:
If you want to permanently remove a user from the wiki space, uncheck all boxes and reload the page.
All wiki spaces are by default 'open' in that they allow access by anonymous users. However, you can at will restrict permissions so that only individual members and member groups may view them, by removing the permission to anonymous access:
Anonymous users shall only be granted permission to read and comment!
There is no separate application available for inviting users. You can invite new users, e.g., by sending them this kind of message:
Welcome to the wiki space of course x / project x!
I have set up a new wiki space called x. It can be accessed on: http://wiki.tkk.fi/display/X/
TKK users will sign in using a user account and password granted by the Computing Centre. If your home organisation is a member of HAKA identity federation, you can log in using HAKA authentication. Visitors can create a username using their e-mail address at http://wiki.tkk.fi/signup.action"
For more detailed instructions, please see http://wiki.tkk.fi/display/support/Pikaopas
The space admin is responsible for making backups files of the wiki space on a regular basis.
To make a backup file:
If you want to restore a space of which a backup file has been made, please contact the wiki service administrators: webmaster 'at' tkk 'dot' fi
Space admins are strongly advised to archive the space before removing it, because the removal is irreversible!
Consider carefully whether removing the space is necessary, and notify all participants of the removal well in advance (including visitors).
If you are certain you want to remove the space, go to Space Admin: Browse Space > Space Admin > Remove Space
