Is it really not possible to bulk change Page Restrictions (not permissions) for like all pages in a space?
We have a space with a couple hundred pages, all with specific page restrictions to a user which is not here anymore
The user taking over needs to take over these permissions to see and edit the pages but is unable to.
Is there really no other way than clicking through the page restrictions button on every single page and adding the user?, this is unbelievable -the user is even Space Admin but to no avail.
Unfortunately there's big drawbacks with scriptrunners built in scripts. the bulk page restrictions doesn't have any add feature, only remove and replace.
So all you can do is turn off restrictions entirely, or set a new list of people who can view. You can;t for example explicitly add your admin group as explicit viewews or editors en-masse.
Also, a drawback with the attachment versions script is the number of hits it gets, is determined by the hits you'd get when using quick search, this means you'll only be able to see and remove attachment versions from restricted pages you have explicit view rights to :(
I realise that this is a very old post, however; a better way to manage this would be to utilise the user group function in confluence.
I realise this is not a solution to your question about how to bulk update Page Restrictions but hopefully it makes managing these pages easier.
Yes we know that one
You'll have to press every single one of the pages in the list and then press the page restrictions (padlock) button, and THEN you can add/remove the restrictions
With 100'erds of pages in that list it is a quite cumbersome and slow process
Thats why i'm asking
As far is I have tested, you do not have to go to the pages.
In the list of the restricted pages, just click the padlock and the restriction will be deleted. Then you will redirected to the page information of that page.
I hope this workaround works for you. Let me know if it helps.
