Taking away confluence permission even though that person is an admin.

Hi,  I am wondering if it is possible to take away a accounts permission to confluence without taking away their rights as an admin for confluence ?


Or do I have to take away all admin "groups" in order to take away that member from confluence ?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Bhadin Bunpuckdee ,

Do you mean that you want to give Confluence's system configuration rights to a specific user/user group, but they don't have any space management or access rights?

Hi, thanks for replying so quickly. No, what I mean is that one of our admins for confluence doesn't really use confluence more than just adding users from our company. Therefore, I am wondering if it possible to take away their confluence access without taking away their confluence-admin rights.

Hi @Bhadin Bunpuckdee ,

I think that once the user has the permissions of the Confluence administrator, he can adjust the global permissions at any time.

Alright, thanks for the quick response!
