Getting "You are not permitted to perform this operation." when editing and assigning a space to an already existing question

I am both a Confluence- and a site-admin.

I can without any problems edit a text of an already existing Confluence Question that was asked by another user.

But when I try and assign the space for the question, I get:

not permitted.png


This seems like a bug. Why give me the option to edit the space field, to then give me an error its not permitted.

What permissions do I need to do this?


Any feedback would be appreciated!

Hi Christoffer, 

By any chance is this space using Documentation Theme? Confluence Questions is not integrated with this theme yet (to know more, please read this article). 

Also, are you able to view and access the space you're trying to link? 


Nope, its using "Global Look and Feel"
