How do we change the default Group assigned to a new Space.

We don't use the confluence-users Group any longer; in fact, we completely removed it from our system. All of our users are assigned to an employees Group by default, so how do we get Confluence to assign the employee Group to a new Space instead of assigning the old deleted confluence-users group?

Thanks in advance!

Currently there is no way to do this in a downloaded version of Conflunce but is possible in OnDemand.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Configuring+Default+Space+Permissions

This stems from the following feature request

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-2559

I believe the intent is to have this brought in during the release of the 5.0 series of Confluence, the best bet is to keep an eye on the feautre request and perhaps leave a comment inquriing to it's release date.

Thanks for the response!

Thanks for the response. It's now also possible in an own hosted version.

The doc link is broken, here's the blog post instead: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/07/quickly-create-and-set-default-permissions-for-new-spaces/

Hmm. Thats a shame. I think I've seen "confluence-users" hard coded as the default value in places, so you really ought to try and use that.

Can't you just make "confluence-users" an alias of "employees" in your user directory/LDAP -- that way, Confluence is happy and you could be happy too.

Thanks for the response!
