Administrator can see restricted pages in browser but not in API

Anton I'm New Here Dec 05, 2021

I have a page P created by user A where he granted view+edit permissions to user B.

Now I have created user C and assigned him to the exact same groups as user B - one of these groups is "administrators".

 

The tricky part and where my question comes from:

When using user B:

  • I am able to see the restricted page in Confluence (via the browser)
  • I am able to see the restricted page via the REST API - when searching for all pages where "creator=A"

When using user C:

  • I am able to see the restricted page in Confluence (via the browser) ----> Why???
  • I am not able to see the restricted page via the REST API - when searching for all pages where "creator=A"

 

Can someone please explain why browser and REST API are behaving differently?

Hi, thanks for the hint. I missed this one while browsing through the open issues.

However I cannot really consider this to be helping me further on because the workaround mentions that I can access the restricted child page directly via the API. That is fine but how can I retrieve the ID of the child page in the first place when I do not know it.
I just have the user provided. Any suggestion on this?

 

Thanks
