titleHow do I allow all the students in my course access to my space?

Every course at Queen's has an LDAP group associated with it. The LDAP group contains all the students registered for the course. The group is updated nightly.

Here's a break-down of the different parts that make up the LDAP group name:

Subject_CatalogueNumber_ClassSection_Term_Ancillary

Here's an example of how the name of a course's LDAP group is made:
Course: BIOL 102, section 001, summer session
LDAP group name: BIOL_102_001_5_6W1

where:

BIOL = Subject
102 = Catalogue Number
001 = Class Section
5 = Term (Winter = 1; Summer = 5; Fall = 9)
6W1 = The last part of the LDAP group name varies. It can safely be ignored.

 

To add a course (LDAP) group, to your Wiki space

If your space is using Default theme:

  • Go to your space and choose Space Tools > Permissions on the sidebar.
  • Choose Edit Permissions.

If your space is using the Documentation theme:

  • Go to your space and choose Browse > Space Admin at the top of the screen.

  • Groups – a list of groups which already have permissions to access the site.
  • Individual Users – a list of users who already have permissions to access the site.
  • Anonymous Access – the space permissions granted to all anonymous users of the site.

To search for the course (LDAP group):

  • In the Groups section, select Edit Permissions 
  • Choose the magnifying glass symbol icon.
  • The Group Search window opens. Enter all or part of the course name (e.g. BIOL_102). You can use an asterisk '*' as a wild card.
