Managing a Community Wiki



FogBugz Wikis are an easy way to maintain documents within an organization or project team collaboratively. You can also open them up to a broader audience and leverage the easy setup and use for non-FogBugz users. You can keep publicly-accessible end-user documentation in them or setup status pages and reports for your clients. 



Wikis have separate permissions settings for internal FogBugz users, registered community users, and anonymous (not logged-in) users. To set these up, click Wiki | Manage Wikis and then click the Configure icon next to the wiki.

You can set a wiki to be readable and writable by any logged-in FogBugz user. You can then choose whether community users who have confirmed their email addresses have read-only, write, or no access. Lastly, you can set the permission level for anonymous users.

If you need finer control over which FogBugz and community users have access, select a group from the drop-down menu. You can set up as many groups as you like. Each one sets read, write, or no access for each FogBugz user. You can also add community users to a group, granting them read-only or read and write access. Because community users require email verification but do not use up a license, they provide an excellent way to give individual clients access to project status pages without letting them see other projects or having to open your pages up for access by anyone.
