  5. While many permission levels exist, most needs will be met with View, Add Pages, and Add Comments permissions.

    Note

    Anonymous Access: It is not recommended to allow anonymous creation of content (comments, pages, or blogs). Any individual can create a wiki account, so we recommend using 'confluence-users' (mentioned above) to allow open access to your wiki. This will allow better tracking of revisions and blocking of unwanted users.


  6. To be able to access the Space Admin area (which includes space permissions and themes), the Space Admin column needs to be checked
  7. To adjust permissions, select the Edit Permissions button (it doesn't matter which one)
