Can't assign my colleague on Confluence project

Hi guys, I added my colleague as an admin and to all other user groups and I still can't add him as assignee on one of a projects. I can add all other colleagues instead of him. Checked all the permissions and I even made him as an Individual user that he could do everything on Confluence. Any suggestion? Thank you.

What do you mean by "assign"? Confluence doesn't really have assignees, so I'm not sure what you're talking about. (Jira has assignees, but I don't want to debug that if you really do mean confluence)

Hi Alex,

As Nic said, Project and Assignee terms are used for Jira. On Confluence we have Space Administrators, Page Creators, etc.

Check in your Jira instance if the user have the proper permissions to be assigned. Please take a look here:


Hi guys, thanks for your answers.

When I create a project on Confluence (blank page or any other) I want to add my colleague to the page but auto complete doesn't give me his username, nor name. I just can't add him so that he could get mentions to his e-mail.

I've checked all the permissions and it seems to be neat.

My colleague groups:

Auto complete can't find my colleague that I could add him:

I also added him as an Individual user and granted all the permissions:

Any thoughts?
