Here's a brief help on how to login to this wiki.


This wiki supports multiple levels of authentication and trust. Users can be anonymous, have "asserted" identities using cookies, be authenticated, or be administrators:

Status Description The User greeting Shows..
Anonymous User not logged in, and has not supplied a cookie "G'day (anonymous guest)"
Asserted User's browser contains a cookie called ~JSPWikiAssertedName "G'day, username (not logged in)"
Authenticated User logged in with a login id and password "G'day, username (authenticated)"

When a user decides to log in — or is challenged to do so by a page access control or security policy — he or she sees a standard web form with a username field and a masked password field. After receiving the submitted web form, the wiki attempts to log the user.

Lost password#

If you lose your password, you can ask to have a new, random password sent to the mail address stored in your User Profile.

Register new user#

The form asks for:

  • A user ID
  • A password
  • The user's desired "wiki name" (e.g., JanneJalkanen). You can use this name in Access Control Lists or Wiki Groups
  • E-mail address. This can be used when you need to reset your password. (see Lost Password)

When the user saves the profile, the wiki checks to make sure that the new user id, wiki name and full name aren't already used by someone else. If so, the user is given the opportunity to choose different values.

After a user creates a wiki profile, he or she may edit it at a later date via the My Prefs link. By default, users must be authenticated to edit their own profiles...
