Users and Groups
A 'user' is the account for an individual who accesses Confluence.
New users are created by an administrator via the Administration Console.
New users are created by administrators, who can also group users together into user groups for more convenient administration. This means that any permissions you assign at the site, space and page levels can be assigned to a whole group. A user in one of these groups will automatically be granted all permissions granted to the group.
There are two special groups in Confluence:
- confluence-administrators - these users have permissions to administer users and access the Confluence Admin console.
- confluence-users - this is the default group into which all new users are assigned. Permissions defined for this group will be assigned to all new Confluence users.
Your Confluence instance may include additional groups.
Confluence treats all users who do not log in when they access Confluence as being 'Anonymous'. Administrators can assign permissions to this group separately.
