I'm trying to find a way to generate a list that will show which spaces contain permissions for a specific user group. I DO NOT want this script to delete or modify any permissions, I just want the list. I looked on the forums and found a few related articles, but nothing seems to be working for me.

This script from the Adaptavist library seems like a good starting point, but I'm a newbie with scripts so I don't know what needs to be modified to generate a list rather than remove space permissions. Also, I do not know what fields should be updated in the template to run the script (the group I'm looking into is called: WikiAnnouncers)

Hi @Russell Kent 

Welcome to the Community.


Here is a modified script based on the one in the library that will print out all the permissions for the selected group:

import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.Group
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.parameters.annotation.GroupPicker

@GroupPicker(label = 'Group', description = 'Select the group to inspect')
Group selectedGroup
assert selectedGroup

def spacePermissionManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpacePermissionManager) as SpacePermissionManagerInternal
def groupPermissions = spacePermissionManager.getAllPermissionsForGroup(

def writer = new StringWriter()
def builder = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
builder.table(class: 'aui') {
thead {
tr {
th 'Space'
th 'Space Name'
th 'Space Type'
th 'Permission'
tbody {
groupPermissions.each { permission ->
if (! return //don't print out non space permissions
tr {
td permission?.space?.spaceType
td permission.type


I'm using the groovy markup builder to create a simple HTML table to output the data in a user-friendly way
