How do I manage wiki members and access?

When you create a wiki, you are the wiki owner. As an Owner, you can control who can read, edit, and manage the wiki.

Before you begin

Ensure that you are an Owner of the wiki.


Access to a community wiki is managed in the community. Membership roles in the community are replicated in the wiki. Community owners can edit wiki settings, and Community members can create and edit pages in the wiki. Users who are not members of the community can read the wiki content but they cannot edit it. For more information, see the Communities wiki help.
