How do I manage wiki members and access? 

When you create a wiki, you are its owner. You can control who can read, edit, and manage the wiki as an Owner.

Before you begin

Make sure you are an owner of the wiki.

Note: Membership and access to community wikis is managed in the community. There is a direct mapping between membership roles in the community and the wiki. Community owners can edit wiki settings and delete the wiki. Community members can create and edit pages in the wiki. Users who are not members of the community can only read the wiki content. See the Communities wiki help for more information.
