How can I lock user accounts in Confluence?


Is it possible to create user accounts that automatically lock the user out if they don't login for a certain amount of time? For example, after a month or three months etc?

Hi Mick.

I don't know an easy way to do that in the interface, and the last autentication date is not available through the API.

The only way I can think of do that is to write an script which connect to the DB and check all AttributeName='lastAuthenticated' in the table cwd_user_attribute, and then deactivate the users which haven't logged in for the specified time. I recommendo you to do the user deactivation through the API rather than directly on DB.


thanks. I'll pass the idea on to the tech team and see what they think.
