The Wikis application of IBM® Connections enables teams to create a shared repository of information. The Wikis API allows application programs to create new wikis, and to read and modify existing wikis.

Wikis implements the following APIs:


Wikis implements the Atom Syndication Format (Atom 1.0) to serve Atom feeds that you can use in your applications to search for and retrieve information from any of the wikis created by the people in your organization. The format documented here is what feed readers use to discover updated content in a wiki.


Wikis implements the Atom Publishing Protocol to enable you to manipulate wiki content. Wikis provides a service document and some category documents. The service document contains the currently authenticated user's collections and feeds. You can use the publishing APIs in your applications to perform actions, such as starting a wiki. When interacting with wikis to which you have owner access, you can retrieve more detailed information about a wiki. You can also delete, restore, or update the wiki and any of its entries. When interacting with wikis to which you have Author access, you can update, delete, and restore any wiki entries that you authored; you can also add new entries.
