Can I use Atlassian Teams to assign Page permissions in Confluence?

Hey Atlassian Community!

With Atlassian Teams accessible under People > Start a team (https://support.atlassian.com/atlassian-account/docs/what-is-an-atlassian-team/), our users expect to be able to use these Teams created here in adding to Page Permissions/Space Permissions in Confluence Cloud.

If you view the screenshot below, it seems like there are "Admin-managed groups" which are the traditional groups available in the admin.atlassian.com portal, but where are the "team-managed groups" or something like that.

Looking through the Confluence Cloud documentation, there are no mentions of Atlassian Teams:

Is this an expected feature? I went through the publicly available Confluence Cloud - Open Issues (https://jira.atlassian.com/issues/?filter=98690), but was unable to find anything mentioning this. I was also not able to find anything mentioned in the publicly available Cloud Roadmap (https://www.atlassian.com/roadmap/cloud?selectedProduct=confluence) or Confluence Cloud Premium Roadmap (https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/premium/roadmap).

Does someone have a solution for this or know any more info?

Thanks in advance!

Alex

@Alex Abdo 

Teams are not used for permissions but rather to connect and collaborate on content.  It allows any confluence user to create a team.  They can connect with others, help others stay notified, monitor other's information, and more.

@Brant Schroeder do you know if there's any intention to change this? The ability to assign teams to roles in a project would be a game-changer in allowing project and space admins to better self-manage access.

@Dave Nicholson I am not seeing anything on their roadmap and I am also not seeing a feature request for that functionality.  I would suggest submitting a feature request here: https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa
