Who will add user to Confluence-users group

Hi All,

Who will add the users to "Confluence-users" group either Confluence-Adminnistartor or the Space Admin.

Do the space Admin can add this group or only the Confluence Admin  ?

Hi  @Roja Gurram ,

space Admins can't add users to groups, they can only add groups or users to their space.

So to your question, the Confluence Admin has to do this.

This is also important, because the group confluence-users is important for the license count. 

Hi Thomas,

Ok, thanks for your response.

Space Admin can create their own group and can they add users into their group ?

Thomas Schlegel Community Leader Apr 03, 2020

No, they can only use predefined groups

Thanks again for your quick response.

Predefined groups has been created by Admin ? How do they use predefined groups ? For example i am the Confluence Admin i have created a group called "Team" ? How do the space Admin can use it.

Please give clarity here am getting confusion .

The Confluence Admin creates groups and adds users to the groups. That's what you have done with the "Team" group.

A space admin uses this group in the space administration page and grants permissions to the group.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks a lot for your clarification.

I understand now.
