The BlueSpice MediaWiki experience with SaaS Web

1 free domain

Choose a free domain with one of the following extensions: ch, at, biz, com, de, es, fr, info, net or org. If you like, you can move an existing domain to SaaS Web. Other extensions are optional.

1 free SSL certificate

The communication between your computer and the server needs to be encrypted as sensitive/personal data will be transmitted. SaaS Web installs a Let’s Encrypt certificate for free for one domain (with and without www subdomain). On demand, an other type of certificate or existing one that you already own can be set up.

Current BlueSpice Pro version preinstalled

SaaS Web sets up the original BlueSpice Pro distribution on top of the current LTS MediaWiki package - you have all the features at disposal without any restriction. With BlueSpice Pro your MediaWiki gets enhanced by numerous features as for example a visual editor (WYSIWYG) or a performant search engine (Solr/Lucene) and many more.

Enterprise MediaWiki with BlueSpice Pro

The BlueSpice MediaWiki distribution is completely compatible to the standard MediaWiki application but targets mainly business and associations with its extended functionality. Among others there is the powerful search engine based on Solr/Lucene and a module to generate pdf books.

Core, extensions and theme updates

SaaS Web uses monitoring software but also keeps informed via mailing lists, community memberships and personal contacts in order to update the systems and applications on time. Some updates are automatic, others are manual, all manipulation is monitored and safe, so that a broken update can be reverted directly without further consequences.

VPN secured access

If you desire SaaS Web can setup VPN so that the access to your BlueSpice Pro MediaWiki will be secured. After activation, the web interface will be only accessible with a VPN client; so you can protect your application effectively. This service is optional, please contact us if needed.

Daily full backups of the BlueSpice Pro MediaWiki instance

SaaS Web runs daily full backups of your BlueSpice instance known as disaster recovery. In between, during update/upgrade actions, the application might be backuped additionally (in case an update would fail, we can recover the application directly).

Intrusion & malware detection

Detailed information about BlueSpice Pro MediaWiki

BlueSpice Pro is based on a MediaWiki Long Term Support Version („LTS“) and the most important MediaWiki extensions.

Powerful search with Solr

Thanks to the integration of the Solr/Lucene search engine, you can search within articles and attachments (PDF documents, MS office files) using a high-performance full text and title search and a fuzzy search. It is possible to limit the search to a particular area via filters in order to give quick and efficient search results. You can also find your contents with a semantic search and browse the metadata.

Process & quality management

With BlueSpice, you have the full control of your wiki! You can watch articles and receive notifications when changes have been made. You and your colleagues can see all changes at a glance. On top of this, you can set responsible editors or initiate a review of article contents using workflows. Quality assurance is completed with additional functions like resubmission of articles for review or the expiry function.

Customisation

Set the wiki up the way you want: your user page not only gives you the space for your own profile, but also for notes which are only of personal interest. The user settings let you configure notification mails. The dashboard and personal navigation bar bring you directly to your favorite topics.

Comfortable visual editor

Work with a well-engineered WYSIWYG editor including a table function and many business-specific enhancements. Insert pictures via copy and paste. Working with links and categories is just as straightforward as inserting tags and check boxes.

Enhanced articles

Extend the capabilities of your wiki pages with additional functions and an large choice of dynamic contents: use search or input fields, insert videos, draw flow charts or integrate content from other pages.

Create books

Compile a collection of individual articles quickly and easily by creating a handbook, a documentation or an instruction book with chapter navigation directly in your wiki. Export the wiki books you have drawn up in this way with the integrated PDF converter. Bookmaker lets you equip the PDF with file attachments, a clickable table of content page and a coversheet with your company’s own individual design.

LDAP Management / SSO (Single Sign On)

On demand, we connect your wiki to your company authentication server (LDAP) and allow users to login to the wiki via “Single Sign-on” when they sign up for their workplace. Please contact us for more information.
