Instructors that wish to add a class list to a Wiki Space's Permissions should download the NSID's of students in the class from PAWS. A simple "copy-paste" of the class list of NSID's (separated by a comma) can be pasted to a Confluence Wiki Space permissions.  Entering the class members in this manner requires manual maintenance of the permissions for the space.

There are new class and employee groups that can be used with the space permissions and these groups are maintained automatically by the registration system. If you would like to use these new groups please see the information on this page: Group Naming Convention

Please contact help.desk@usask.ca if you have any issues or concerns.

  1. Can I upload any .csv document with NSIDs?

    1. Hi Christina,

      Sorry I did not notice your comment right away.

      You will have to copy and then paste in the permission field a comma separated list of NSID's (Step 10 above). If you have a csv list of NSID's already you would simply copy and paste that list.

      Some csv files put quotation marks around text, for example "abc123", "zyx321", the field Grant browse permission to will not work with the quotation marks around the usernames.

      If you need further help with this please let me know. I now have a watch on this page so I will be notified right away when a comment is posted.
