Permission to Control Delete Page Versions

Some of the users are able to see the delete button just next to restore in the page history while others do not. 

Where to control this permission?

Hi @Olive Sun ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

You can refer the below URL which has steps for the same. 

I hope the above info helps. Have a good day!

Thanks, @Srinatha T


It seems like I do not have permission to access Look and Feel > Stylesheet.

Actually, I do not want to hide that option but want to figure out the current rule (who could delete page versions) right now in our Confluence instance. 


If i grant a user in my space the permission to delete their own pages, does it also include the ability to delete page versions?

@Olive Sun , yes delete page will also give them delete the page history as well.

This seems not to be the behavior we experiencing. I grant a user delete page permission but he still cannot see the delete action in page history.
