We are a very secure company. It worries us that users can set their personal spaces to be viewed by literally anyone. Can we restrict that ability without having to remove anonymous access to Confluence entirely?
I don't believe this is possible through configuration - as you have probably already found, a user always has full space permissions in their personal space, even if you try to remove them.
This wouldn't remove the functionality, but would make it harder to change.
It is NOT a secure solution, but it helps to hide "Anonymous Access" settings from users.
Add this script to the Custom HTML "At end of the HEAD" section:
AJS.$("#aPermissionsTable input").attr('checked', false);
Maybe more of a question - why would you have anonymous on as being a secure company? My presumption reading that would be that you'd force logins.
I have seen companies setup a separate confluence instance for anonymous to ensure there is no bleed from their secure instance. Perhaps that might be a strategy to adopt in your case. Then you could use Comala Remote Publishing to sync anything you need in both spaces.
Depends on how you setup the other instance. You need licenses for people to do things, not for anonymous people to read things.
Price for security at hand these days - separate instance - firewalled completely off, 100%.. take the small licensing fee vs the large exposure.
Manage the risk.
Hi there, Robert. Happy to hear you are getting started with Confluence.
