How can I add myself as a confluence admin, so that I can delete a "Space"

greg elofson Apr 01, 2012

I have logged in as admin, but cannot ad myself as a confluence admin. I have created a new user, but cannot add that new user to confluence admin. There is not option for "space" admin, because I cannot -- as an admin -- give privileges for confluence and/or space admin.

Are you logged in as a Confluence Admin?

No, I'm not. (Actually I read through some earlier comments you were able to offer another, on the same issue. That person was able to log in as a confluence admin, I am not. Based on your earlier helpful comment, I endeavored to log in as a confluence admin. While I am logged in as an Admin, I am not a confluence admin. Therefore, I tried to change mygroup permissions to become a confluence admin--but was disallowed. I tried to create a new user and give that new user confluence admin privs, but was disallowed. I checked to be sure that i was logged in as an admin, and i was. Right now, only the sysadmin is in the confluence admin group, and no others mayjoin that group. Therefore, i cannot delete a Space.

There must be someone with Confluence Admin rights? Only they can add more people as admin!

Yes, there is someone. It is the sysadmin @noreply. However, while the group for confluence admins was closed to all, under the General Tab permission section, I was able to make it work in the following way: JIRA > Administration > Wiki > Permissions > Space Permissions > Manage Permissions (for a unique Space) > Remove Space. This worked after changing the permission under the Wiki tab, to allow the admin to also be a confluence admin. My prior error was due to trying to change permissions from the "General" tab, instead of the Wiki tab. And this was disallowed for confluence admin.
