Confluence - Set space permissions via API

I am currently creating a new space in confluence with REST. From what I have read it is not possible to add space permissions that way. Therefore I am now trying to to use the Java API. However I can't figure out how I am supposed to add the permissions there. All the classes I have found can only read the permissions (SpaceManager, SpacePermissionManagerInternal, SpacePermissionManager, Space)

I want to know if there is any way to give a User a permission in a Confluence Space.

I guess you can use - ContentPermissionManager

@Emanuel Konringer  Also look at this code base from Atlassian Copy Space Plugin, it will give you some ideas -

Specially copySpacePermissions method.

Unfortunatly I can't use this class - I need to set the permissions in the whole space.

I've tried it before and it didn't work, but now this worked.
