Hey Benjamin,

Welcome to the community!

To swap the Confluence admin status from the organization secretary to other page members or committee members, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Confluence with your admin account and click on the "Settings" cog icon in the top-right corner and select "Confluence Administration" from the dropdown menu.
  2. Navigate to the "Global Permissions" section to manage the overall permissions for Confluence.
  3. Locate the "System Administrators" or "Confluence Administrators" group within the Global Permissions settings. By default, these groups have full administrative privileges in Confluence. Add the desired page members or committee members to this group to grant them admin access.

If you want specific members to have admin access only to certain spaces, you can grant them "Space Administrator" permissions. In the Global Permissions section, click on "Space Permissions" to manage permissions at the space level. Add the desired members to the relevant spaces with "Space Administrator" permissions.

Please give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,


Benjamin Newman

I’m sorry Carlos - maybe you misunderstand my question - our committee cannot communicate with our outgoing secretary, who has admin status/full control of our workspace - I want your help with transferring full admin status to me (as the softball club president - as per the confluence space/page listing our current committee members/roles).

We cannot login as an admin to adjust/add admin, none of the other committee members have that level of access/authorisation, I need Confluence IT Dept to step in and assist with changing our remaining committee members level of access to admin, especially mine (as I am ultimately responsible for this organisation).
