Error trying to change default Confluence page from Dashboard to space page

I get the error:

The Collaborate space must be accessible to the confluence-users group (or anonymous view permissions must be granted) in order to be set as the Site Homepage

The thing is that there is NO confluence-users group in my On-Demad version. Even if I create it, is still doesnt work. Documentation is also outdated.

This looks like it may be a configuration on our end, or some misconfiguration somewhere.

I think the best place to start debugging this is with our OnDemand support team:

Let us know the resolution here if you go this route.

Hi Shawn,

You'll actually need to create the confluence-users group then assign the permission for this group into the Space you'd like to be the new Confluence's home page.

Hope this helps.


I already had that group created and gave it permission and I'm still receiving this error.

I ran into this problem also in OnDemand, in my testing the above needs to be done for the users group.

Has this issue been resolved in the last 1.5 years?
I've tried adding all of the groups (including confluence-users)
I've tried removing all of the groups.
I've tried adding the confluence-users group again.

This seems like a pretty basic feature.
