PageAssignments allows to assign pages to single users or user groups. Assigned users are notified about assignment changes via email or internal notifications.

  • Assign responsible users to a page.
  • Assign individual users or groups.
  • The responsible editor(s) for the page can be viewed in the flyout "Page assignments" in the quality management tools.
  • Users can view their assignments on the page Special:PageAssignments.
  • Users with admin, maintenanceadmin or reviewer rights can manage all assignments on the page Special:ManagePageAssignments.
  • Assigned users can be shown directly in the title area of the page if the default setting is changed to:
$GLOBALS['bsgPageAssignmentsPageHeaderLimit'] = 25;

Assign all users (with option to exclude some users)

To activate the option to assign all users to a page, a group everyone can be created. For this, the following code needs to be set in <bluespice-installationpath>/extensions/BlueSpicePageAssignments/extension.json:
"PageAssignmentsActivatedTypes": {
			"value": [
This allows users to add the group everyone to a page assignment. Individual users can be excluded from the assignment by creating the file MediaWiki:PageAssignments-everyone-blacklist. Users can be added to this blacklist with using line breaks.
