How to give "Can sign in" permission to a new group in Confluence?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Manage application access

I'm a site-admin and we use JIRA and Confluence. 

Now, I'd like to use a new group and give it "Can sign in" permission for Confluence. 

For JIRA I can do it on this page (see screenshot), but for Confluence its not possible. And the link shows an other page with other funcionality.

What's the way to go?

when you click on Configure in Confluence link, it takes you permissions page of Confluence. On this page on the left side you can see users and groups. Click on groups and create your group there. After that return to the permissions page, click on edit permissions and add this group to the groups here. Then you can see this group on the first page (accessconfig page).

Thanks Elifcan!

For me, its not very logical, but I get used to wink
