I would like to get a list of the security constraints in Confluence.
E.g. User A has access to Space A, B and C, but can only view the pages in Space B. In Space C there are 7 pages he cannot view.
User B cannot access Space A and B, but he has full access to Space C.
How can i list this?
That could be quite a big list. You'll have to start in the space admin on each space and see which group each user is in and also any individual user permissions. You'll also have to traverse the page hierarchy for each space and see what additional permission restrictions have been applied for individual users and groups.
Sounds like a lot of fun, and maintaining this is likely to be unpleasant unless you automate it and cache the results. Don't open up tranversing the whole wiki programatically for everyone as it will likely slow things down.
It's best to keep permissions as simple and open as possible -- this is a collabortation platform after all. Where possible, only add permissions using groups -- this simplifies things substantially.
