Confluence: restric permission for confluence-users


I would like to provide a confluence account for each of my customers companies. But I have two problems:

  • It's an account for all a company, it means that several users will use a same account. So I need to lock the profile edition to be sure that nobody will change the password or the name. Is that possible?
  • A confluence-user can go on his profile, then click on "People", then he get the page browsepeople.action where he can see every customers account. How can i disable that?

    Thanks for your response!

Hi Takar, 

You cannot block an user to edit his own profile, unless you try to do some customization but I believe it won't worth it. And, if you want to create an account for many people use the  same account is not a good idea. If some day something goes wrong, you wont be able to know who made that. 

For your second questions, please have a look on this documentation:
