the confluence adminstrator has provided me the permissions to edit a page in our confluence space. However I can not see the editing option? what's going on here? he doesnt know what could be the problem too. I could see the red-locker with me giving the editing ability but i dont see the editing function on the page? look at attached for clarification! thank you for your help
The screenshot shows that you have Page-level Restriction edit rights, but the space admin should check if you have space-level Permissions to edit.
For that, the Space Admin goes to Space Tools>Permissions>Edit Permissions (button) and makes sure that you have Page:Add rights, then clicks Save.
Is that it?
I hope it does too.
A bit more background on this: For one to have edit rights in any page in a Confluence space, one MUST have the space permissions to do it first. The page-level restrictions takes the universe of all those who have view or edit rights in space permissions and says, "on this page, only this person, persons and/or group(s) can use their view/edit permissions".
If they are uncomfortable with you having edit rights elsewhere, there is a discussion to be had. We have hundreds of spaces and few of these concerns because of course Confluence tracks all page edits and if someone is watching the space in question, and notices someone has edited something they shouldn't, it's easy to roll it back through Tools>Version History>Restore.
Good luck! Comment back if you have anything else but hopefully this answer is what you're looking for (if so, just click the checkmark to signal that).
Space permissions are granted at the space level, whereas page restrictions are designed to take away said permissions.
If there are no space permissions to take away, then page restrictions do nothing.
If there are no page restrictions but you still can't view or edit, it's because you don't have the necessary space permissions.
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
