Limiting Space Admin User/Group Selection

Drew T November 27, 2022

Hi all, 

I'm wondering if there is a way to limit the users and/or groups that a space admin is able to assign space permissions to?

Currently a space admin appears to have the ability to add any user or group that the LDAP sync brings into the application and I'm curious if there is a way to reduce this scope so that Space admins only have an explicit list to choose from and the ability to assign permissions to any user or group is only available to Confluence Admins?

@Drew T If the group is synced then it will show up as an option to add and there is not a way to limit it.  I would suggest only syncing groups that you would like to have available in Confluence.   Just because the space can be added does not necessarily mean that every user in that group has a Confluence license and would be able to see the space.  Depending on how you have setup your sync to apply licenses will also impact access.
