Default User Type

Can I set the default User Type from “Standard” to “Advanced” so that when a user logs in they don’t have to change it manually?


Hi. This is not a configurable feature ATM.

Note that changing is something expected, depending on what you’re doing (and it’s as simple as hitting the x+x+x+a keys to toggle between simple and advanced).

If you really want to automate it, it could be achieved like this:

  • Write an event listener to listen to the DocumentCreatingEvent event and register it to be called when a document with a XWiki.XWikiUsers object is created.
  • In the listener, change the user type

Examples of event listeners:
