Remove user permissions from Confluence space



Could someone help me with ScriptRunner REST endpoint running on Confluence Server 7.2.0?


I just need to remove user permissions from space only. For example, I pass username and space key, and the script removes all permissions. I've been trying to use SpaceManager, SpaceManagerInternal but my context is always null. 


def space = spaceManager.getSpace(spaceKey)

SpacePermissionContext context = SpacePermissionContext.builder().build()



The builder().build() doesn't work, and createDefault() as well.

How do I use this context in the right way?

Hi Tomislav! 

I was able to get this working with the snippet below: 

import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.user.UserAccessor

def spacePermissionManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpacePermissionManager)
SpacePermissionContext context = SpacePermissionContext.createDefault()

def userAccessor = ComponentLocator.getComponent(UserAccessor)
def user = userAccessor.getUserByName("<username>")

spacePermissionManager.removeAllUserPermissions(user, context)

For reference, I am using Confluence 7.8 with ScriptRunner 6.14.0 installed. 

Please let me know if this works for you!
