Upon creating a new space within this Confluence site, the system disallows anyone access to the space. The only permission set is the creator being administrator of the new space.

(lightbulb) This pertains to "regular" spaces as well as to "home"/"personal" spaces.

Hence, to allow anyone access to your space, add the proper access permissions! Click on Browse Space -> Space Admin -> Permissions -> Edit Permissions and edit to your liking.

Three typical scenarios are:

  1. You want this space for everyone in the world to see: add at least "Use" permission for "anonymous", and the same permissions to the group "Confluence-Users-LDAP" (see also Groups to use for assigning permissions).
  2. You want this space for everyone at Jacobs University to see, but none outside: add at least "Use" permission to the Group "Confluence-Users-LDAP" (see also Groups to use for assigning permissions).
  3. You want this space for selected people at Jacobs University to see, but none else: add the individual users and assign permissions as appropriate.

Permissions for "anonymous" are inherited to users of the group "confluence-users" (which has no members), but not for the group "Confluence-Users-LDAP" (which holds the accounts of Jacobs University's members). If you want logged-in Jacobs University members to access the space, add permissions for the group "Confluence-Users-LDAP". For a more thorough discussion, see Groups to use for assigning permissions.

Confluence "Security and Permissions" is explained on the vendor's manual page at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF20/Space+Permissions+Overview.
