Hi @夜不收  Welcome to Atlassian Community!

If you are using Free Confluence version, then you won't be able to manage Space permission. 

Upgrade to Confluence Standard then only you will be able to manage Space permissions.

I'm a Standard type now, why is there still no public link? Can you tell me where to open it?

Hi @夜不收  I think Public Link is not enabled. 

To allow public links on Confluence:

  1. Select at the top-right of the navigation.

  2. Select Settings.

  3. Click Public links on the left.
    This will display the Public links screen.

  4. Toggle on Allow public links on Confluence.




I followed the documentation, but it's not clickable1653397171(1).png

Oh, this is the wrong place, but I didn't find the public link option that the documentation says on my side.

Hi @夜不收  

As per document, 

Public Links has been temporarily restricted to users that are already using the feature. This is to help ensure a better overall experience for future users that intuitively integrates Public Links into this new sharing experience.

The improved Public Links experience will be released separately, following shortly after the release of the new sharing experience. On re-release Public Links will be available to Confluence Standard and Premium customers.

Oh, it turns out to be like this, so is there any way we can use this function now? Because of the business relationship, we need this function very much. If we don't have this function, we may only consider other tools.
