Description

Changes the creator, last author or content author fields for a specified existing document with a specified user.

This is useful, for example, when the creator of a document is important and, even if you have created a document, you want to give credits to someone else.

Another important usecase of this is when you want to assign Script Rights or Programming Rights to a page (by setting the contentAuthor). This is similar to the Change Content Author extension in this sense, however it is more flexible and it only targets a single, specified document.

Requires Programming Rights to function.

Note: If you install this with Extension Manager or manual import, the page also contains rights set to allow only the XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup to view, edit and delete the page, to avoid misuse. Of course, you can change the rights as you wish.

Source

Below is the source to copy/paste in a new document in your XWiki instance, in case you can/will not use Extension Manager or direct XAR import to install it.
