Can I limit permission based on labels in confluence?


is there any way to limit permissions in confluence based on labels?

E.g. all sites with label "ABC" are only visible for users in a specific group?

I think Confluence works the other way in that people have access to different Spaces based on what Permission groups you assign to them individually.

So if you have Space ABC, DEF and XYZ, ABC will allow anyone access if they hold Permission group Alpha, DEF will allow access to anyone who holds permission group Delta, whilst XYZ will allow access to anyone who holds either Alpha or Delta.

Suppose Fred has been given both Alpha and Delta Permissions, he can see all three Spaces.
But if you later remove Delta Permissions from him he will revert to only seeing ABC.

Just continue through each of your Spaces deciding if you want either Alpha or Delta or both Permissions group to have access.

Hi Rodney,

our use case is: limit/restrict some labeled sites to special groups only within the same space.

Additionally I should mention that we don't grant space admin permissions to our users as we have to be very carefully about the visibility of each space. Therefore only admins can change permissions.

Of couse we can manage the permissions/restriction for each site individually. But that means a lot of administration. If I could assign a permission/restriction to a label and the label itself is mapped with groups/users it would be a nice feature as it would allow a kind of sub-administration by space-users itself within the space.

Thanks anyway

Hi Robert,

There is no way to limit access to spaces or pages based on labels. There are quite a few permission add-ons in the Atlassian Marketplace and one of those may be able to help you.

Hi Rob,

unfortunately I haven't found by now a suitable plugin for this special use case.

Thanks anyway

Hi Robert - did you ever find a way to limit access to spaces or pages based on labels?
