Don't know. What do you mean by atl_token?

For everyone stumbling over atl_token, which they need in order to send queries to built-in actions such as setcontentpermissions.action.


You can get it $('[name="atl_token"]').attr('value') on Confluence pages.

So from now on, this works:


Since does not work, you can use the atl_token in your own requests with whatever XMLHTTPRequest fashion you want.

Hi Martin! 


Do you have an idea how to add user restrictions instead of group-restriction with this method?

I found out that using ?viewPermissionsUsers=USER does not work. It only works with a long user key like this: viewPermissionsUsers=8a8a89a55365d4c6015365d5e9c913af

I can get the current user from a the meta-tag  "ajs-remote-user-key", but I don´t know how to get this key for arbitrary users.
