I want to move our tech writers out of the "confluence-administrators" group to their own group. This is because there is no way to prevent members of "confluence-administrators" from downloading add-ons.
However, when I do this, I need to replicate the Space Permissions that they assigned to the "confluence-administrators" group.
Can I do this with the following SQL?...
INSERT INTO [confluence].[dbo].[SPACEPERMISSIONS] SELECT [PERMID] ,[SPACEID] ,[PERMTYPE] ,'tech-writers' ,[PERMUSERNAME] ,[CREATOR] ,[CREATIONDATE] ,[LASTMODIFIER] ,[LASTMODDATE] FROM [confluence].[dbo].[SPACEPERMISSIONS] WHERE [PERMGROUPNAME] = 'confluence-administrators'
...or do I need to manually recreate the Space Permissions they set up?
There are API methods for dealing with groups, users, and permissions. The link is below. Another option would be to use Bob Swift's Conflunce CLI (command line interface) utility to automate the process. He has options for iterating through a csv and performing actions for each line of the csv ... it might make the process a little easier.
