Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for a Wiki System that satisfies the following requirements:

  1. Uses ACL (Access Control lists - who can access what pages)
  2. Needs to be able to integrate with Active Directory
  3. Is scriptable via an API (meaning I can create a wiki page through an API in a program instead of logging in and manually typing in the page.)

The scope of this project is to integrate an in-house version of github - that auto generates, and populates a wiki entry for each project repository, when it is created. Since it is in-house - the need for ACL's and Active directory integration.

Any help in pointing me in the right direction is greatly appreciated.

All the answers below satisfy conditions 1 and 2 but no one talks about answering or how item 3 in his question is specifically answered. I am not sure why people are upvoting the below answers? –  Jeremy Hajek Jan 24 '11 at 21:59

SharePoint can include a wiki. That would cover all of your named requirements. It might not cover any un-named requirements.

This is a bad, really bad wiki. Actually it is not a wiki. –  Mircea Vutcovici Dec 21 '10 at 19:27
    
@Mircea Vutcovici, SP2010 includes a Wiki function that isn't terribly dissimilar to other wikis and fulfills his other requirements. It might not be most people's first choice, but it works. –  Chris S Dec 21 '10 at 19:30
    
Mircea - like I said, if he has any specific requirements in regards to how wiki-like it needs to be, he didn't bother telling us. I answered the question he asked. –  mfinni Dec 21 '10 at 20:05
    
ok Thanks Mfinni –  goutham Dec 21 '10 at 20:21
    
i will look into sharepoint wiki –  goutham Dec 21 '10 at 20:21

Mediawiki won't do all that "out of the box" but there are add-ons to cover the bits it won't do natively. It has the added bonus of being the most flexible and most supported wiki around.

Can you clarify? There are three versions - the free/core and then the hosted versions per user. –  Jeremy Hajek Dec 22 '10 at 0:32
