Looking for an online wiki with at least the following characteristics, for use in a software team:

  • normal wiki style links between docs/hierarchy
  • login with Google/Microsoft ID
  • and ability to allow no access/read/write access based on those IDs
  • revision history on documents
  • (optional) approvals required for changes on a subset of documents
  • ability to comment and assign (as tasks) on parts of a document

Appreciate any tips.

  • Dokuwiki and MediaWiki are probably the most known – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 19 '17 at 16:32
  • Maybe have a look at confluence atlassian.com/software/confluence – boly38 Oct 19 '17 at 18:58
  • Does "online wiki" mean that you need a hosted wiki? Or do you just mean that it should be a web app (self-hosted), and not a local tool? – unor Jan 17 '18 at 23:49
  • Hosted or self-hosted. Either way, web app. – Nik Jan 18 '18 at 7:29

Dokuwiki seems to support both access control through Access Control Lists and login auth with third party account support through a plugin

It seems to have builtin unlimited revision system and many other features

Mediawiki also supports revisions, and multiple auth plugins as well. Most other features can probably be achieved with installation of extensions

    +1 for DokuWiki. I've seen many good websites using it. – Axx May 19 '18 at 11:20
