Permission Question



I am trying to edit a space and I am wondering the following:

  1. admins - can see and edit everything owned by the Company
  2. general admins - can see and edit everything in the general space
  3. viewers - can see everything in general and edit some files on a case-by-case basis

Is it possible to do this? Would I have to edit the access for each and every member that is invited to the 'space.'


I am new to this community and I am having a harder time understanding it


Thank you!

@Taylor Turner You can use Page restrictions in confluence for this. Who can view and edit.

Also Pages inherit restrictions from parent page.

@Taylor Turner welcome to the Confluence community!

In theory, what you are looking to do is possible. There are many parameters that can be changed on a user or group basis. My suggestion would be to create groups with the individuals you want to have a specific permission set and assign the group to the space or pages, which eliminates managing individual permissions.
