45 -* **Date** - date and hour at which the conversation was flagged

61 -== Forum rights management ==
62 -
63 -There are few entities that we should focus on when we are talking about rights in the Forum application: **forum**, **topic**, **answer** and **comment**.
64 -By default, any regular user is allowed to perform the same actions on all the above mentioned entities, just as they are on any other wiki page: **create** a new one, **edit any**(even created by others), **delete** only those for which is the creator.
65 -In order to be able to properly configure a **rights schema** on Forum application, please read and understand the [[XWiki Access Rights Guide>>https://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Documentation/AdminGuide/Access%20Rights/]].
66 -Since the default behavior often needs to be modified to meet the requirements, the following sections represent some general use cases and the solutions that address them:
67 -
68 -=== Allow only certain users to create a forum ===
69 -
70 -In order to allow only certain users to create a forum, two actions have to be done, by an user with **admin** rights (using, in each case, the {{html clean="false"}}<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-cog"></span>{{/html}} menu > Administer page > Rights: Page & Children):
71 -
72 -* from **Forums.WebHome** page -> explicitly allow **edit** rights only for the needed users or groups of users (this will prevent all the other users to create, edit, delete).
73 -* from each **Forum** page -> explicitly allow **edit** rights for XWikiAllGroup (this will resume the unwanted behavior from the previous action).
74 -
75 -This is a simple rights schema achievable when there are no other rights constraints on the Forum application. Things get complicated, otherwise.
76 -
77 -=== Close a forum, topic or answer ===
78 -
79 -An entity can be closed when is considered to be at end of live and the activity on it should stop. Nothing can be created, edited or deleted.
80 -A closed forum implies that all the topics and answers are closed.
81 -A closed topic implies that all the answers are closed.
82 -When an entity needs to be closed, an user with Admin rights can deny **edit** and **comment** rights for all the users by explicitly allowing the **edit** and **comment** rights to some Admin/Moderator users or groups (using, in each case, the {{html clean="false"}}<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-cog"></span>{{/html}} menu > Administer page > Rights: Page & Children).
83 -
84 -=== Delete a forum, topic or answer ===
85 -
86 -Deletion can be performed, by default, only by Admin users. It will also work when in the forum is only one participant (the creator).
87 -By default Forums, Topics and Answers can be deleted only by their creators and Admin users. However, an user can't delete a forum if is not allowed to delete all the topics children and their answers children.
88 -Deleting a forum means that all its topics and answers are being deleted.
89 -Deleting a topic means that all its answers are being deleted.
90 -A forum creator must be explicitly allowed to **delete** a forum, in order to be able to delete the topics and answers (using the {{html clean="false"}}<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-cog"></span>{{/html}} menu > Administer page > Rights: Page & Children). The same applies when a topic creator wants to delete a topic. An answer can be deleted by its creator without any constraint.
