Who is this course for?

We designed the “Advanced Permission and Security Management in Atlassian Confluence” course to help you and your employees:

  • manage permissions easily;
  • give different levels of access to any piece of information within your Confluence instance;
  • avoid annoying mistakes that can lead to the leakage of confidential data.

This course is perfect for:

  • novice administrators who lack deep theory knowledge and practical experience;
  • Confluence administrators who need to refresh and widen their knowledge;
  • power users who want to become Confluence administrators themselves.

Want to practice? You’re welcome!

For further convenience, our course is divided into six lessons. Each of them consists of a 20 minute video tutorial and a list of practical tasks. The offered tasks cover all the material considered in the videos. To complete the practice, you will be provided with a personal Confluence Server and Crowd lab environment.

If something goes wrong while completing the practice, we can recreate your laboratory stand to help you continue your study from the problem place. Our practical tasks are composed in such a way that you can start from any lesson you prefer, they are not related to each other.

We will check your homework manually to provide you with the detailed feedback and useful tips if needed.

At the end of the course, you can take a final test to refresh and structure all the key points.
