Automation of User Disabling

I am looking to setup an automated process to disable users who have not signed in for X days for Confluence similar to this JIRA script:


I seem have a functioning script, however it does not provide any output like the JIRA version does. Has anyone successfully got an output that can be used for audit? It will only show "null" after it finishes running.

Right now I would have to view the log while running via the scriptrunner console. 

As of now I am running 6.13.x Confluence Server.

Thanks in advance. 


import com.atlassian.confluence.user.UserAccessor
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.user.UserManager
import groovy.time.TimeCategory
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import org.apache.log4j.Logger

def myLog = Logger.getLogger("com.onresolve.jira.groovy")

def userManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(UserManager)
def userAccessor = ComponentLocator.getComponent(UserAccessor)
def loginManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(LoginManager)
def permissionManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PermissionManager)

def threeMonthsBack
use(TimeCategory) {
threeMonthsBack = 3.months.ago
def users = userManager.users

def page = users.currentPage

while (true) {

page.each { user ->
if (userAccessor.isDeactivated(user)) {

def userLoginInfo = loginManager.getLoginInfo(user)
def lastSuccessfulLoginDate = userLoginInfo?.lastSuccessfulLoginDate

def toDeactivate = ! lastSuccessfulLoginDate || lastSuccessfulLoginDate < threeMonthsBack
if (toDeactivate) {
log.warn "Found user: ${} with last login date ${lastSuccessfulLoginDate}, will deactivate"

if (!permissionManager.isSystemAdministrator(user)) { "Deactivating user.."

if (users.onLastPage()) {
else {

Hi Mike,

when you run a script in the console, it outputs the result („return value“) of the last line in your script. The simplest way to get output, is create an instance of an write to that StringWriter. At the end of the script simply write „writer.toString()“ and the console will show you the output. Note that output is expected als HTML so before you output anything, I recommend issuing a „<pre>“ (for preformatted text) and closing it at the last line („</pre>“).



writer = new StringWriter()
printer = new PrintWriter(writer)


printer.println(“<pre>“) // first line of output
printer.println(“Deactivating User: ...“)

printer.println(“</pre>“) // last line of output

writer.toString() // last line in the script

Note that the output will not be printed „live“. It will appear, after the script finished so it can take a long time to see something, if you have a lot of users / long running tasks and you may run into a timeout.
