I installed confluence and want to allow search for all users, but currently only admins can use the global search - all other users only see a permission page
Your not allowed to acces "search/searchv3.action?queryString=..."
How could I add search permissions to a specific user group?
Confluence only allows you to search for things that you have permission to see. If users are getting that message then that means you did not give them permission to that space/page. You will have to go into those spaces and give view permission to either that specific user or to whatever group that user belongs to. System admins have access to everything which is why you are able to see everything and don't need to be given permission in the spaces.
To add permissions in a space go to the space then Browse->Space Admin and then click on permissions tab.
You need to add permissions to that space. Add the group you are in or you can add individual users to that space. Try one of those options and see if you still have the same results. Confluence is permission based so you need to have permission to view a space to be able to search things in it, unless you open the space to anonymous.
