How to recover permissions ins personal spaces (confluence cloud)

We moved from one instance to another and imorted our data. Afterwards we had several personal spaces that were unlinked and have no group or user permission for administration. 


is there a way to have access again?

As Ann already suggested <YourInstance> will allow you to recover permissions for a space.

However if you migrated from another system I hope you maintained existing user names – otherwise the /~user private space links can't be reconnected. In such a scenario I would propose to recover permissions and the move pages to the new user space.

Hi - An adminstrator on your instance can assign permissions to the inaccessible spaces. They need to go the the cog wheel on the sidebar and chose Space Permissions - the URL is:


There is a Manage Permissions link after each space where the admin can assign permissions to access the space.
