How to create, authorize, edit and delete users

List All Users

  • Click on Account from the sidebar.

  • Click on Users from the sidebar.

A list of all users authorized to login will be displayed.

Create a New Local User

A local user is stored in the Wiki.js database. This authentication method is enabled by default and is used for the root administrator.

To create a new user, click on the Create / Authorize User button in the top right corner of the Users page.

Fill in the fields and click Create User.

Authorize a Social User

A social user is authenticated using Microsoft, Google or Facebook login mechanisms. It provides convenience for users by not having to remember yet another login.

To authorize a social user to login to Wiki.js, click on the Create / Authorize User button in the top right corner of the Users page.

Fill in the email address of the user and select the social provider in the Provider dropdown menu.

Finally, click the Authorize User button.

Edit a User

To edit information about a user, click on its name from the Users page list.

Note that the email address cannot be modified as this is the unique identifier of the user. If the email address of a user changed, you must create a new account and delete the old one if necessary.

Read the Manage Access Rights page to learn how to provide the necessary access rights to a user.

Delete a User

To delete (or de-authorize) a user, click on its name from the Users page list.

Click on the red Delete Account button at the bottom right of the page.
