Editing an existing user

  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Click on the Administration link in the top right corner of the screen to go to the main Administration page.
  3. Click on the Users icon to bring up an overview of all users.
  4. You have two options:
    1. Click the user name for the user to edit.
        • On the user's page click on the button corresponding to the information you want to edit (info, password, etc). This will open a page editing view containing the attributes than can be changed.
        • Click "Save and View" - to save the changes you have made.
    2. Click on the pencil icon near the user you want to edit.
        • This will open up a lightbox with the main information of that user, which you can edit in place.
        • After your modifications press Save to be redirected to the Users view.
        • There is also a link to the complete user profile, where you can proceed as above (first option).

Deleting a user

  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Click on the Administration link in the top right corner of the screen to go to the main Administration page.
  3. Click on the Users icon to bring up an overview of all users.
  4. Delete the user by using the X button for the user to delete. The user will automatically be removed from all the groups it belonged to.

You won't be able to delete the currently logged in user and you'll need to log using other credentials. This is to prevent mistakes...

Customizing the Registration page

You can also customize the way users are registered in your XWiki by creating a XWiki.Registration page which will override the default registration page. 

Since 2.2M2 this is done by the Verified Registration Page, part of the Administration Application. This provides more features such as captcha and client side validation of user input. For more information about how to configure it, visit the application page.

If you don't know what to put in the page you can start by copying the content of http://yourserver/xwiki/templates/registerinline.vm## and paste it in your XWiki.Registration page. You'll have to be careful to remove the first test in the template or your registration page will loop forever: 

#if(!$xwiki.hasAccessLevel("view","XWiki.Registration")||$xwiki.getDocument("XWiki.Registration").isNew())
[...] ## here is the code you want to keep
#else
$xwiki.getDocument("XWiki.Registration").getTranslatedDocument().getRenderedContent()
#end
