Search for pages restricted to a user

Is there any way to search for all content (pages and blog posts) for which a defined user has viewing and/or editing rights for a complete confluence instance?

I know about the space admin function but what I'd need is a search string to serach for all contnetn tah user xyz has viewing or editing rights (of course minus the ones every user has rights for)

It is possible to get the information with a user macro. Here is a similiar one, which lists all pages in every space having group permissions:

## @noparams
#set ( $pageManager = $action.getPageManager() )
 
#set( $allSpaces = $spaceManager.getAllSpaces() )
 
<table class="confluenceTable"> 
    <tr>
      <th class="confluenceTh">Space</th>
      <th class="confluenceTh">Page</th>
      <th class="confluenceTh">Group Permission</th>
    </tr>
#foreach($space in $allSpaces)
    #set( $allPagesInSpace = $pageManager.getPages($space, true) )
    #foreach($page in $allPagesInSpace)
      #if($page.hasContentPermissions())
        #set( $permissions = $page.getPermissions() )
        <tr>
          <td class="confluenceTd">$space.name</td>
          <td class="confluenceTd">#contentLink2($page false false)</td>
          <td class="confluenceTd">
            <ul>
              #foreach($permission in $permissions)
                #if($permission.isGroupPermission())                
 <li><em>$permission.type</em> to
<strong>$permission.groupName</strong></li>
                #end
              #end
            </ul>
          </td>
        </tr>
      #end
    #end
#end
</table>

It can be adapted with minimal effort to work for blogpost and userPermissions as well. Be advised, that depending on your server hardware and size of your Confluence instance, running these kinds of macros will put the system under heavy load for quite some time, so use with caution or on a separate test server.

How to use Confluence Cloud for stakeholder management

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
