you may create a table and list calendar events there (as you can see for
example at public deployments scheduling calendar at
https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployment). LDAP authing is of course
possible, some information about it are at

You may restrict reading and editing privs to logged in users only and then
remove createaccount rights from all users using manual at
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User_rights. MediaWiki allows to
manage rights of LDAP accounts as well as rights of normal accounts. You
need bureaucrat rights by default (or user who is in group which have
*userrights* right or has ability to add/remove a user to/from group using
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAddGroups /
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgRemoveGroups) and then you can
manage rights using manual at
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Assigning_permissions*. *

By default all users can edit and read all pages but you can remove *edit* and
*read* right from special group called * and grant it only to user group
(then only logged in users only will be able to read/edit). If you want to
explicitly restrict searchengines bots from accessing your site you can use
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgDefaultRobotPolicy but althrough
they usually respect this settings they aren't technically prevented from

Hoping I helped you with my links.

> I work in a technical support organization where we do use MediaWiki to

> I have the following requirements :
> - LDAP user integration.
>    [1] Maintain wiki rights for LDAP users,
>    [2] Restrict calendar rights and maintain the ability to track
> changes and to revert when needed.
> - No external access.
>    We do not want to rely on external sites as for example Google for
> both security and privacy concerns.
> - Support multiple calendars
>    We need the ability to add multiple calendars to the same wiki in
> order accommodate different needs for different teams.
> - Event display
>    Calendar should display an appropriate event field with possibly
> additional detail.
> I have looked at some Calendar extensions but not yet found what I am
> looking for.
> Are there any MediaWiki Calendar extensions that people here use in

> customized wiki-integrated solutions  for this type of use ?
> The consensus could also be we need to look at alternative and perhaps
> more 'heavy-weight' solutions for this task.
> Just looking for ideas here, and appreciate your thoughts and insights,
