Space Permissions Overview
Space admins can also manage watchers for that space by choosing Watch at the top-right of any page in the space.
The following permissions can be assigned for each space:
|Permission||The user or group can:|
|View||View the space's content, including the space's details, its pages, and blog posts.|
|Pages||Add||Create and edit pages in the space.|
|Restrict||Apply page-level restrictions.|
|Delete||Delete pages in the space.|
|Blog||Add||Add and edit blog posts in the space.|
|Delete||Delete blog posts in the space.|
|Comments||Add||Make comments in the space.|
|Delete||Delete comments from the space.|
|Attachments||Add||Add attachments to pages in the space.|
|Delete||Delete attachments from pages in the space.|
|Delete||Delete individual mail items.|
|Space||Export||Export content from the space via the space-level export screens. Note that this permission doesn't affect the exporting of a single page's content. Anyone who has permission to view the page also has permission to export its content.|
|Admin||Administer this space, including granting permissions to other users. This permission can't be granted to anonymous users (users who aren't logged in).|
Confluence administrators aren't necessarily space administrators.
- A user who has the 'Confluence Administrator' global permission isn't automatically a space admin for a particular space. In order for them to be a space admin, they must belong to a group which has space admin and view permission for the space, or their username must be specifically granted space admin and view permission for the space.
- If you deny all admin access to a space by mistake, so that nobody has access to administer the space any more, you'll need to ask someone with Confluence Administrator global permission to restore the permissions for you.
- A user who has the 'System Administrator' global permission does automatically have space admin permissions for all spaces.
