How to disable page preview on permission request?

I've created a page with restricted access.

When someone requests permissions to this page, I revieve an email with a preview of this page.

The page has restricted access for a reason — it contains sensitive data. It's highliy undesirable to leak that data into email account.

I consider this a security issue.

That's not a security issue, you have the right to see the page already.

My confluence account, not the gmail one. If I trust Atlassian, that does not mean I trust Google.

If you don't trust google for your email, that's fine. You'll need to use an email address you do trust instead. It's not Confluence's fault that you have chosen an email you don't trust.

Sorry, I should also have said that if you must do this because you've got insecure email accounts, you will need to hack the core code that builds the email.

No, that is not fine, because the data is already shared with third party. Without my explicit permission, as far as I can see. The trust issue is not the only one, it's also about expectations. I may intentionally use that mailbox for insensitive data only so I could read it in public places.

Ok, so it's not fine. So stop using insecure email accounts - if you believed them to be insecure, then you shouldn't have used them in the first place.

Hi Roman, first of all thanks for the feedback mate. smile
