I need to create a general access right management concept for our company. Is there any?

Our company has just "gone live" with confluence. The first spaces already do exist. We now need to keep structures in proper order. Therefore, we need a concept of how to manage all access rights. Does anyone have some ideas?

What exactly are you looking for? Best way to organize people in groups? What permissions you should be giving people?

Everything should be done via groups in my opinion. It is tempting to get into one-offs and assign perms to individuals, but in the long run it will become a major pain to manage. We usually create at least two groups for each space. One that can just view the space and one that can edit. You may even have a third for space admins. Basically there should be a group for each role that you will have in that space. Also, if you have LDAP or Active Directory I would recommend hooking Confluence up to that so that you can manage the groups more centrally.
