How do I create a group in Confluence?

When using the share function found in the top right corner of a page, the second entry field titled 'Add people' has 'user name, group or email' written in it.  Which brings me to the question, how do you create a group in confluence so you can share given page to all people within the given group.

Hi @Mark Clarabut 

To add groups, make sure you have admin rights on the site.

  • Go to settings-> User Management-> Groups 
  • Create a new group and add users to the group

Hi @Mark Clarabut ,


Welcome to Atlassian community …!

Confluence groups can be created by confluence administrators.

Space Admins / Space users can't create a group in confluence. permissions restricted.

If you want to form a group with some specified emails. you can inform the confluence admin with specified users list. they will create and enable access on space.

Later you can share pages to groups.



Thank you for clarifiying this, sadly because groups can only be created by conlfuence administrators, my organization doesn't facilitate it due to other priorities.  Thanks again for the information.
