New to Confluence Cloud Premium! Inspect permissions and copy space permissions

Hi everyone – I’m Hilary Dubin, a product manager on Confluence Cloud Premium. I’m delighted to share that we added two new features to our Premium plan today: inspect permissions and copy space permissions. Both features help site and space admins…and their teams remove blockers and improve productivity at scale.


🔒Everyone can diagnose problems with inspect permissions

Inspect permissions helps your entire team troubleshoot page permissions at a glance. Now it’s easy to understand who has access to pages and who doesn’t. Admins and page owners no longer need to be a bottleneck in untangling page permissions issues. You can find inspect permissions on any page in the page restrictions dialog.

Suppose you’ve recently sent a page to someone and they can’t see it. Use inspect permissions to determine how to safely open up the page to them. What if you gave someone access to your page, but they still don’t have permission to edit and you can’t understand why? Inspecting permissions helps you get to the root cause so you can start collaborating right away.

We know that site and space admins have loads of responsibilities and get a lot of requests for page access. With admin key, site admins can view the restricted page temporarily, but they still need to know why users are locked out to prevent it from happening again. With inspect permissions, they can quickly pinpoint the issue to get their co-workers back on track.

Inspect permissions helps everyone from admins to end-users figure out why certain people can’t access Confluence pages and exactly where to fix the issue. No more guesswork or wasted time over permissions problems! Now anyone can get to the bottom of permissions problems and fix them with confidence so they don’t happen again.

⌚Site and space admins save time when they copy space permissions

Site and space admins invest a ton of time and effort getting permissions right for their Confluence spaces. With copy space permissions, site and space admins can copy permissions from one space to another. When they want to replicate permissions across spaces, copy space permissions saves them the time and hassle of re-hashing rows in space permissions. The best part? Getting spaces set up correctly is foolproof when you clone permissions within space settings or whenever you’re creating a new space.

Imagine you’re spinning up a team’s new project space, and you want to maintain the same permissions as their last project. Rather than wading through the last project’s space permissions settings, you can simply clone permissions from the pre-existing space.

Site admins also have to differentiate permissions from one team’s spaces to another’s. For example, IT teams often require different permissions from HR teams, which need different permissions from marketing teams. When site admins set up new team spaces, they can create template spaces for specific teams. Site admins can make a template space for marketing and copy it over for any new marketing spaces on their Confluence site.

💎We’re just getting started…

Inspect permissions and copy space permissions are only the first features we’ve added since Confluence Cloud Premium’s launch in August. But they won’t be the last! We have many more features planned to help growing organizations scale Confluence. If you’re already on Confluence Cloud, try Premium free for 30 days. Give inspect permissions and copy space permissions a spin and let us know if they’re helping your team work more efficiently.

Hi - this is a good progress, but I am not sure if it resolves the main issue we're seeing with our end-users who often get blocked by lack of permissions or restrictions. What does the experience look like for the end user who is trying to access a page they have no access to, and have no idea who to contact?


Specific use cases:

- trying to access a page with view restriction

- trying to access a page in a restricted space

- trying to access a page with view restriction in a restricted space 

- trying to edit a page where their name is whitelisted on restrictions, but they have no space-level Edit permission (this one is especially confusing to users)


Thank you,


One more... in the 'Inspect permissions' screen, what happens when contacts are a user group? Are you able to list group name or members?
