Installable with the Extension Manager


Since XWiki 10.9RC1, this application is deprecated. It means we will no longer support it. Instead, the recommended extension to use is Notifications Application, which offers the same features but with more performances.

Since XWiki 11.1RC1, if you want to install Activity Stream Plugin anyway, you need to remove the file xwiki-platform-eventstream-store-*.*.jar from the WEB-INF/lib folder, because this macro depends on Activity Stream Plugin, and these modules cannot be installed together.

The Activity Stream Application contains an Activity Macro that listens to the following events:

  • create, edit, delete events for pages
  • comments events
  • attachments events
  • annotations events

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
