I have copied over our production instance of Confluence to a sandbox environment in preparation for upgrading to Confluence 4.0. This, of course, includes the entire directory of users who have access to our Confluence production instance.
I need to keep email notifications on in the sandbox for testing purposes, but don't want users who are not participating in the testing to get notifications from this environment. What I'd like to do is bulk remove all users from the test instance and manually add in about 10 people who will actually do the testing.
Is there a way to bulk remove users? We have about 600 active users, so I don't want to remove them manually.
1) The link is dead.
2) Needing to pay for a plugin to do this is a cop-out.
3) The plugin, as far as I can tell, is no longer supported anyway.
This is a pain to deal with manually. How hard can it be to have a bulk disable screen where you check boxes or something and do them all in one batch instead of having to page through 800 odd users, open their details one by one and disable them manually?
Side-note: my original answer was more diplomatic but when you type in an answer then click the "log in or sign up to post" button, the subsequent login page doesn't take you back to the page you came from and you lose what you typed.
We have a plugin that could be used for this purpose. It s also good to have in the future to ensure only active users have an active confluence license.
