      As per my understanding, right now user management is completely done by confluence administrators.
      Hence very simple task like creating user account, adding them to different user groups for any space; can be done by only by confluence administrator.

      I was wondering is it possible to delegate this task to Space Administrator as those are right guys to take decision on whom they want to add to their space and if they want to users to specific user-groups. As a Confluence Administrator, I don't want to spend my time in doing these time consuming tasks for hundreds of spaces, when space admins are better suited to do that.

      Any idea when such kind of feature will be available ? Please let's know.

      Current options as suggested by Atlassian [Comment by David Soul on 22nd Oct]:

      1. Install the Custom Space User Management (CSUM) Plugin to allow space administrators to manage users at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEXT/Custom+Space+User+Management+Plugin

      At last I end up in developing this CSUM plugin (version 1.0). Version 2.0 (currently rc3 release) is much better with many requested features and better UI with very active contributions from Gary, Ren, Andy

      2. Install the Invite Plugin to allow space administrators to invite users by email from http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEXT/Invite+Plugin

      3. Use external user management such as LDAP or Active Directory and allow space administrator to grant users through there

      4. Grant site administration rights

      5. Grant site admin rights to a specific user and ask space admins to delegate their user administration tasks to this person
