SID-02269: Restricting view access on a single page

Status: Answered Answered TWiki version: 6.0.2 Perl version: 5.005
Category: CategoryAccessControl Server OS: Ubuntu 14.04 Last update: 1 year ago

I have a page that I want only users in the group OurWorkingGroup to be able to read. Following the page http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/TWikiAccessControl, I add the following to the page:

This does nothing; everyone (including non-logged-in users) is still able to read the page. The bullet point is recognized as a bullet point. The ampersands aren't really there, I just had to add them to get this question posted.

How do I deny read access for a page to everyone but a specific group?

Discussion and Answer

Exactly as you tried to. I fail to confirm such an observation in my TWiki installations, as well as on twiki.org. Trying to access Sandbox.AccessControlExample will fail for all members who are not part of DevelopBranchGroup, and it consists of nothing but a setting for ALLOWTOPICVIEW.

Note, however, that all members of the administrators' group TWikiAdminGroup will be able to read all topics, regardless of access control settings.

Well, I'm an idiot. I used the wrong Group name. Thanks for your help, though, Harald!

You're welcome... I didn't provide much insight anyway. I'll flag this question as "Answered".
