How do I remove users from the Individual Users Permissions list for a specific Space?

I'm new to Confluence, and created a team space with 20 or so members.  I realize now that in my case it would be better to create a group, allowing me to add / remove members and modify rights for the whole team easily.

I know how to make a group and add it to the permissions list.  In addition to that, I'd like to remove the currently listed individual users so that there are no doubts about rights, and to make things easier to manage.  Unfortunately there are no trash cans next to users, and the only control I see is the gear that lets you select or deselect All per user.

Is there a way to delete users from the Individual Users list under Permissions?

Sal,

Deselecting all per user and clicking the Save All buttion will delete individual Users from the permissions list. Also, an old trick from before they had the Deselect All gear option that still works is just to deselect the View option (first checkbox to the far left) and then saving.

Cheers,

Tom

This doesn't seem to work.

See attached screenshot - three users without any permissions still show up and are not automatically deleted, after "Deselect All" and "Save".

Any other ideas?

Use the gear to "deselect all", then save the change.  If a user has no ticks at all on a row, they will be dropped off the permissions.

You're quick, Nic!

Wow... that's just, I suppose interesting is the nicest thing I can say about that interface. Thanks, that helps a lot.

I think they've tried to "simplify" the clutter on the screen there, and it's lost some of it's intuitivity because of it (I have no idea if "intuitivity" is a real word, but it feels right here. And probably on a scrabble board too...)

I have an additional question to this - if the users are removed under the Individual Users permissions but are a part of the group, will they still have access under the group permission? (Basically, does the removal of permissions at the individual permissions cancel the granting of permissions via the group.

Thanks,

Kristin

The group has access, and they're in the group. If it didn't work that way, groups would be pointless as access control items.

Wow, that was so many years ago and right when I was starting out with Atlassian products! Agreed - it seems funny now that I would even ask that question.
