Disable Certain Tool Options for Anonymous Users

Is there a way to hide/ disable the following options from the 'Tools' dropdown menu for anonymous users:

  1. Page History (so they are not able to view previous versions of the page)
  2. Export to Word

Hi Talitha,


You can put a javascript in the Confluence Admin >> General Configuraton >> Custom HTML  to hide those element.

Here's the javascript to hide those option for annoymous user.

<script type="text/javascript">
        if (AJS.params.remoteUser == ''){

For more detailed explanation regarding the usage of javascript in the Confluence, you may refer to this documentation https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Use+JavaScript+in+Confluence.

Hope this helps!
