Benefits and key features

  • Integrates MIT's well-established Moira list management service to manage group permissions
  • For authorization, Wikis integrates with MIT's Touchstone authentication service
  • Non-MIT users can participate as well, by creating a Touchstone collaboration account

The MIT Wiki Service uses a product named Confluence from Atlassian Software.

Requirements

The MIT Wiki Service is intended for use by MIT academic, administrative, research, and student groups.

Note about support: Support is provided for creating spaces, setting up access control to spaces, and basic instructions and documentation on how to use a space. Since rules, desired page formats, and guidelines often differ from space to space, IS&T can only provide limited guidance to individual users of spaces. As a space administrator, you may need to assist your content creators as they get used to creating or editing pages in your space.
