How admins can view pages and attachments even if restricted?


We have problems with our 90 GB confluence cloud instance, and we have to find where space is used. So we developed a script which will get each attachment of each space and give us a view of where the space is used.

But we saw that this script has a flaw : even if I am site-admin, I can't view attachments in restricted pages.

There are almost 20 GB I can't tell where it is used because of this problem.


How can I bypass this restriction as a site-admin?

This widget could not be displayed.

You need to add yourself to the restriction.{id}/restriction 

The same applies when manually viewing pages as admin. 

Good luck!
