Hi @Anderson Hsu ,

There are a few cases when a user gets this message.

  1. The user doesn't have a license to use confluence (usually the default group is confluence-users)
  2. That user has space set as default and he/she doesn't have access to

But usually when a user logs in but it says "Not Permitted" is because it doesn't have a Confluence license attributed (point 1).

Hope this helps you!

Thanks for your kindly reply.
