New Global Permissions Enhancements in Confluence

I’m Neha Bhayana, a Principal Product Manager for Confluence Cloud and I’m excited to share some updates we made for Global Permissions.

To start, the whole page got a facelift so when you do need to scan all the options, it should be easier to read! Check out the before and after!


Expand groups to see members, in one place

Previously you could not easily check which teammates were in which group. You had to open an entirely new screen to find this information. Well, now we built it right into the Global Permissions page, for ease.


Search & filter to find what you need, fast

Brand new to the Global Permission settings is the search bar and filter options. This gives you quick control without endless scrolling so you can act fast.

The search allows you to search by name or email. The filter options presented allow you to check which groups have access by permission level.

Sort user types with new tabs, for easier navigation

Quickly find what you are looking for by using the new tabs at the top:

  • Users

  • External groups

  • Jira Service Desk access

  • Anonymous access

  • Apps


Get back to your Admin Hub with one click

Quickly manage groups with the new button from the global navigation settings.

We have more improvements coming to permissions but we hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

What i see from the screenshots only so far: You added also here more white space and less information on one page. Thats again a "looking nice" change but nothing for real business.

When you work with 10 test accounts - its nice. When you have more then 100 accounts - you are lost.
