TWiki Groups » All Users Group

This is a special group literally all users belong. The main use of this group is to lift a web level restriction at the topic level.

This is close to AllAuthUsersGroup. The difference is that unauthenticated users belong to AllUsersGroup but not to AllAuthUsersGroup.

Let's say a web is viewable only by the members of the DarkSideGroup by the following line on WebPreferences.

   * Set ALLOWWEBVIEW = Main.DarkSideGroup
By putting the following line on a topic, you can make it viewable by anybody.
   * Set ALLOWTOPICVIEW = Main.AllUsersGroup

This topic is not necessary for the group to work because the group is implemented in the code instead of a topic that has members.
