By default MediaWiki has several user groups that can grant a user a set of user rights. See also the list of groups.

Special:UserRights (MediaWiki 1.10 and higher)[edit | edit source]

MediaWiki version: 1.10

There is a simple interface (Special:UserRights) for adding a user to or removing a user from one or more user groups. To do this the acting user must have the userrights user right, which by default is granted to the "Bureaucrat" user group. You can access Special:UserRights directly or via Special:SpecialPages in the toolbox on the left (as of MediaWiki 1.16.0).

To help in using Special:UserRights, refer to Help:Assigning permissionsHelp:Assigning permissions.

Older versions of MediaWikiMediaWiki (prior to 1.15) do not have a general interface or setting the user rights field of user accounts (use Special:Makesysop instead).
