I have a space that I wish to delete. Unfortunately, the two space admins assigned to it no longer work for us! As a confluence administrator, I do not see the option to delete the space. Has anybody run into a similar issue?
Oh ok. I thought you are a Confluence Admin but not a member of the confluence-administrators group. You can be a Confluence Admin even if you are not a part of that group but then you won't become a space admin on all the spaces! If you are part of that purticular group, you should have the rights to administer all spaces. Maybe you can raise a case with Atlassian.
Thank you Jobin! I checked again - I noticed that I was not part of the confluence-administrators group. However, my LDAP group was in the Global groups with the exact same privileges as 'confluence-administrators', so, I am not sure why I was missing the 'Space Admin' option under the Browse menu.
I ran into a bug in this process a while ago - it threw an error on delete. Solution was to add myself (or the confluence-admin group) into the space permissions with admin rights. You shouldn't have to do this normally - confluence administrators should be able to admin spaces automatically. But just in case you hit the same bug I did, it's worth knowing.
