Admin Delegation to lighten your load

Now you can dole out admin permissions to trusted users so they can configure Refined for Confluence on their own.

Confluence admins can grant permissions for Refined users according to three levels:

  • Refined Admin: Permission to administer all Refined elements (themes, sites, categories, spaces); Confluence admin permissions not required.
  • Site Admin: Permission to administer Refined at the site level.
  • Category Admin: Permission to administer Refined at the category level.
