00356: Complete attributes and passwords overview for administrator
Description: I'm using PmWiki as a CMS. Different people get different passwords for tasks (edit, read, upload) and different WikiGroups and WikiPages. Also some areas are public to everyone. It would be very nice for the administrator to get an overview (specially for not protected areas), via the admin password:
- which group has which password for edit and read
- which page has which password for edit and read
- which groups/pages are public (no passwords)
I'm thinking about a dump in a table (too lazy to generate one here) like:
Group1.Page1 R=... E=password1
Group1.Page2 R=... E=password2
Group2.Page1 R=password3 E=password4
Group3.Page1 R=... E=...
Versions of pmwiki since beta30 now make it possible to see which passwords are in use for particular pages. However, an overview still is not available. It would be possible to implement a cookbook recipe for this, but until more people request it I'm suspending this entry. --Pm
I'd love to see this feature, too!
(I'm currently sort of working around it by creating user groups named exactly like the group, and then manage the user groups via Site/AuthUser instead via Group/GroupAttributes?action=attr. However, the Site/AuthUser page does not give me the actual rights situation, but only my idea of what it should be, and any typo there - or an attr-action by another administrator who doesn't change Site/AuthUser in synch - will tear a whole in the site protection without a chance to notice.)

I'd love to see this feature, too! I work with different groups of people who use different groups on the wiki and it is difficult to maintain an overview of what is protected and how. --Hal June 11, 2007,
Added in 2.2.0-beta52.
