Global Permissions View

Hello everyone, 

I'm trying to locate the following "Global Permissions" view in Confluence,

example 1:

global permission view.PNG

and then would like to navigate to the "Edit Global Permissions" view

example 2:

edit global permissions.PNG

However, when I Go to  > Global Permissions, the view that I get is different from the example 1 above and looks something like that:

example 3:

example view global permissions.PNG


Is the Global Permissions view in example 1 only available for Data Center and Server and the view that I am getting (example 3) is the view for Cloud?

Or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you very much,

@Valeria Ivanova welcome to Confluence Cloud!

Yes, I believe that you have already answered your own question. The Data Center and Server views of many of the Administrative Tools in Confluence are different. Additionally, the options in each differ as well. 

Thank you @Andy Gladstone ! 

I was trying to follow the Configuring and Troubleshooting Permissions in Confluence training video and the view that they were displaying there as an example for global permissions (which looked like examples 1 and 2 that I posted) was not the view I had in our Confluence.

Thank you for confirming! :)
