The Space Admin controls are found in the Space Tools menu at the bottom of the left sidebar.

If you're the owner of a space or you've been given Space Admin permissions by the owner, you'll see menu options to control user access and permissions, change the look and feel of the space, and modify other settings.

Space Administrators are the first level of support for granting access to their wiki space.  They are empowered and have the capability (and are better equipped to know the levels of permissions that would be appropriate) to manage users into their Wiki Space. Space Admins have full access to the tools that enables them to do that.  Wiki Admins support them if they run into issues.

In addition to the instructions below for space administrators, check the Wiki Basics and FAQs pages for more information. If you have any further questions, please email the wiki administrators.



Space Admin FAQs

How do I give someone access to my space or find out who already has access?
In your space, click the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Permissions. For instructions, see View/Change Permissions and the other links in the 'User Access/Permissions' panel to the right.
Which users are in a user group?
You can use the User List macro to display a list of users in a group. For instructions, see User Group Maintenance. Space Administrators can create a new user group or add/remove users in a group using the Custom Space User Management tool under within Space Tools.
Is it possible to let users see or edit certain pages in a space but not others?
To set restrictions for a page, click the lock icon above the page name. Remember that Viewing/Editing restrictions on a page do not grant viewing/editing permissions to users — they restrict these permissions to certain users or groups among those who have already been granted these permissions in the space (see View/Change Permissions). For additional documentation, see Page Restrictions and Permissions and restrictions.
Is there a list of all restricted pages in my space?
