How does "Request access" work in Confluence?

how to delete a confluence page in Confluence 5.4.3

Chào anh Phi,

You're kind of asking two questions; one how to request access and one to delete a page. Request access will send an email to the last editor of a restricted page (at least as of 5.3) to ask to grant you access. This also doesn't override the space permissions.

Deleting pages is another story; on my Confluence instance I have it set up (typically) so that only the space admin can delete pages in a space to keep stuff from being accidentally lost. Sometimes it's a pain since one person needs to be the focal point to get pages deleted but has been safer all-round. The only space I have unfettered access to anyone to do whatever is a sandbox space that people can use to just... try stuff.

Hope this is helpful



I'm struggling with the 'Grant Access' link, which goes to the last editor of a page. In my case, I click the 'Grant Access' link which then takes me to the page. I also observed the URL of that link and mentions the user with grantaccess=true.

The user then goes onto the page that I've given access to, and find the page is STILL restricted to that user.

It didn't work this way before. I'm out of ideas as to why it's behaving this way. Also using Confluence 5.6.4.
