How can a Confluence Admin determine if there are personal Spaces that have permissions set in such a way that only the owner of the personal Space is able to view the space?
I helped someone create a personal Space and make it private, and now when I look at the Space Directory, the personal Space is NOT listed.
What if this person leaves my company? How would I ever archive or delete the personal Space if I cannot find it or see it, even if I know it is there?
Are you a Confluence Administrator or a System Administrator? There is a difference between the two with Confluence Server. The below link describes the differences. Anyone in the confluence-administrators groups should be able to see all spaces and pages regardless of permissions or restrictions.
I think this page could explain all differences - https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/confluence-admin-permission-levels-explained-604209420.html
Basically if you want to see all pages then by default you need to be in group - confluence-administrators . Then having a direct link you can always see that page even if it is having a restriction set.
This is what documentation says:
Members of this group can also see the content of all pages and spaces in the Confluence instance, regardless of space permissions.
Just got the same issue and had a solution. I am using Confluence 7.5.0 Data Centre.
Must be a Confluence and/or System Administrator. Select Spaces -> Space directory -> Personal Spaces (left hand side)-> Select a personal space ->Select/click the i in the circle (right hand side of the selected personal space)-> Overview -> Delete Space. If you can't see Delete Space then -> Space tools (bottom left) -> Permissions -> Add your user-id and set permission -> back to Overview and delete.
I got the same issue and had a solution. I am currently using Confluence 7.5.0. You must be a Confluence/System administrator. Select Spaces -> Space directory -> personal Spaces -> Select the i in the circle of a personal space you need -> Overview (menu) -> Delete Space. Just in case your group admin right doesn't allow you to delete, then select permissions (menu) -> add your user-id -> Select All -> Save -> Overview (menu) -> Delete Space.
