Confluence database application- user permission

Dear all, 

Would it be possible to find some user permission setting from database by using sql search? For example, we want to check some account can use some space or not ? Thank you.

That's a very long winded way of doing the job, as you'd need to build a query that reads the space settings, user tables, and groups.

Do this the easy way - space admin -> Permissions.  Is your user named, or in any groups on the page?  Job done.

If you really need to use it programmatically, you can use the XML-RPC/JSON-RPC API by calling the getPermissionsForUser: https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-rest-api/confluence-xml-rpc-and-soap-apis/remote-confluence-methods#RemoteConfluenceMethods-Permissions.1

That will tell you if a user can use some space.

Hi Hsu,

Nic's option is the best way to find the user's permissions, but if you'd like to improve your SQL knowledge, you can use the following plugin:

You can check the Confluence's table in your database tool manager.

Cheers,
