You are not permitted to perform this operation

I'm trying to edit a page that I created, but when I click Save, it gives me "Not Permitted.  You are not permitted to perform this operation."

I'm using an LDAP synced account and am part of the confluence-administrators group.  Why am I getting this error?

Hey Austin,

                  Please go to view mode of the page. Click on Restrictions and see if any editing restrictions are placed.


If you want yourself to edit the page, Please add yourself to have editing permissions, save and then try editing the page and you can successfully save the page.




Hope this helps

Hi Austin,  As a Confluence Admin, you have access to view pages but possibly not to edit them. Check page restrictions and space permissions.  It's likely one of them (I can't recall if one or both can play a part here, but it's a quick check on your end).  I think one of them will be where the hang up is - please advise how it goes!

Strangely enough, I had to add confluence-administrators to the space permissions, even though it says that group has all permissions anyway.


Thank you! I know this article is over a year old, but it just helped me after upgrading my staging site to Confluence 6.4. Strange that it needed the confluence-administrators group though.
