How can I set space permissions for certain groups using the CLI plugin


Using the CLI I am creating spaces, pages, groups, users etc but I just need something that will allow me to edit the permissions of groups assigned to a particular space

Something like this would be good

confluence --action setGroupPermission --group "test1" --space "testgroup" -- permissions "edit"

Thanks in advance

Hi Patrick,

Please refer to my answer on your previous question (

In this particular case, where you're looking for a command line to add edit permissions for a group on a particular space the same command would look something like this:

confluence --action addPermissions --space "<SPACE>" --group "<GROUP>" --permissions "editspace"

Refer to:

Kind regards,


Fantastic! thanks Peter
