Automatically display an "Internal Only" warning based on page permissions

I'm building a knowledge base which will contain 'internal only' articles that should not be readable/searchable by anonymous users.

To achieve this, 'internal only' documents will be restricted in view for anyone but internal people.

Is there any way (user macro) to display a panel depending on the page restrictions ?

Thank you.

You can get a list of a page's permissions by doing this:

#set($permsList = $content.permissions)

This sets permsList to an ArrayList of com.atlassian.confluence.security.ContentPermission objects (with type, userName, groupName properties). You can then iterate over it and draw your panel based on a particular value as you would any ArrayList.

Thank you very much. This is what I was looking for (although I'm not used with the macro creation, I'll give it a try)

No problem. Feel free to ask more macro-related questions.

Hi Pierre,

Judging from your query you would want to hide some section of a page from anonymous users, if that is the case, you might want to use ServiceRocket Visibility Plugin. The plugin will allow you to hide a section of a page which could be a warning.

Hope it helps.

Your suggestion would make a section appear based on the viewer permissions.

I'm looking on a way to make a section appear based on the page permissions.

Thank you anyway for your time.
