How to restrict users to delete an inline comment from other users

Suppose I have a document that was reviewed by some user using inline comments.

Other user for mistake deleted a comment instead of reply/resolve.


The comment has been lost! I cannot found it anywhere.

Should be possible to restrict that only the comment author can delete his own comment ?

Hi Flavio,

Only users whose belong to confluence-administrators can delete comments.

If you have another group with the same permissions as confluence-administrators, they can delete comments as well.


for comments its oK, but I mean INLINE comment: As you can see, any user can delete all inline comments (even it is from other users).

Hi Flavio, I've been doing some tests with Inline Comments, and users can't delete an Inline comment, just the author can delete it(or a confluence-administrator), but only if the comment doesn't has a reply. Thanks and regards Guilherme Viana

Hi Guilherme, The inline permission is the same of space/pages permission? I made a test and if I remove the option delete comment from Space tools, the option delete inside of Inline is not shown, but user can edit any comment. Should be possible set a different permission for inline?
