As a Conf Admin I want to prevent Space Admins from Deleting Conf Admin Permissions

Space Admins can delete the Confluence Admin Permissions for the Space which makes it hard to manage the spaces if they need to be archived, etc.

Any ideas on how I lock down Confluence Admin permissions so that they cannot be deleted by the Space Admin?

Hi Michelle,

You currently can't do this, you can always restore your permissions through the space permissions page in the Confluence Administration screen.

You can also simply ask the space admins why they removed you and explain them that you can't archive their spaces,export,... if you don't have the necessary rights

Best regards,


Ok, thanks for your response Pete. Seems like this would qualify as an enhancement then :-)
