Copy space permissions

Copy permissions from one space to another to save time and prevent mistakes. This feature will simplify permissions setup and ensure that all permission settings are consistent across all spaces.


This feature is for users with a Premium plan.

You must be a Confluence admin or space admin to use this feature. You must also have the Create space permission enabled. Learn more about the Confluence permissions and restrictions.

Copy the space permissions configuration from another space

As a space admin, you can reuse permissions from an existing space and copy them into a new or existing space.

  1. Go to your space that you’d like to change permissions for (not the space you want to copy permissions from).

  2. Select Space Settings from the sidebar.

  3. Select any option in the Space permissions card.

    1. Note: This card is only visible if you're a space admin in that space.

  4. Under the Space permissions header, open the Copy permissions from another space dropdown menu.

  5. You can either search for a specific space or choose from your starred spaces.

  6. Select Apply.
