is it possible to change the owner of a space?

devin.burnam August 31, 2023

In working broadly in documentation, I create spaces for teams to use. Ultimately, it would be beneficial for someone within the team to be the owner of the space. Is this a possibility? I have researched this before and found that it was not a possibility, but there was the somewhat recent roll out of the ability to change the owner of a *page* (maybe in May of this year?) and was curious if something similar was possible with a space. I didn't find any obvious options within space permissions, space settings, etc.

Thanks for any info!

The space owner has no special permissions. Just make sure to add the user into the space admin permissions.

 

Thanks,

There is no dedicated "space owner" feature in Confluence. Even "page owner" is a relatively new concept, as you noted, and it is limited to one owner per page, there is no bulk-update, etc.

In the Better Content Archiving for Confluence  app, any page or blog post can have any number of owners. Plus, an owner can own a whole page tree! You just have to make him the "tree owner" of the root page and he will own all descendants.:

It means that if you make someone the "tree owner" of the space homepage, then voila, he owns all content in the space!

There is no native space owner feature in Confluence. However, space owners are built into Breeze to establish ownership on the space level and make use of it in reviewing and archiving workflows as part of your content lifecycle management strategy.
