Changing the Page Owner

    The owner of a page is typically the user that created the page intially. The user that owns the page receives some special considerations, and always has permissions to view & edit the page, even if that user would be excluded from such actions when setting page permissions.

    Important:

    This effectively means that if you mark a page as "administrators" only for example, the owner of a page would still have access to the page, even if they are not an administrator.

    Additionally, the owner of a page always automatically receives notifications whenever a page is changed.

    To change the owner of a page either select the "Change owner action" either from the "Pages" tab actions dropdown, or from the actions dropdown within a page itself.

    The dialog that shows up should be familiar, as it looks and functions pretty much the same as when you reassign a JIRA Issue. Type the user's name, and select it from the autocomplete dropdown. Once you're satisfied with the selection, click the "Assign" button, and the page owner is immediately changed.
