How do I become a member of the confluence-administrators group?

My goal is to edit the confluence dashboard. In order to do this I need to be part of the confluence-administrators group. I am member of every other group but I am prevented from adding myself to that group and the sysadmin user is the only user in that group which i believe is for atlassian support.

To my knowledge that role is limited to only Atlassian personel in an OnDemand instance.

ok, so do you know of a way to edit the confluence dashboard without being a part of that group?

Not that I know of. Maybe they would edit it for you.

Hi Chris,

Do you have access to the Confluence Admin > Global Permission link? If so you might be able to create a group and grant some admin permissions to them.

In case you cannot access Confluence Admin Panel (Cog Link), Check if someone on the comapny has permission to do that.



Yes I do have access to that, however that doesn't seem to help. I am the admin for the site, however I am not part of the confluence administrators group which grants permissions to make changes to the confluence site in the way I need.

I can't create a group that has greater access than the group I'm in.

There are limited changes you can make to the Dashboard in OnDemand as you do not have sysadmin/confluence-administrators permissions. Check out the details.
