disable copy feature

If we give users a read-only permission to a page then how can we prevent them from Copying the page? Can Copy option be surpressed?

3 answers

You can customize page layout and add this style:

#action-copy-page-link {display:none;}

This is a great work around, from the UI perspective.  You can also implement it at the space level.

Like Junio Fernandes likes this

Or able it under user role, like confluence-administrators.

No, you can't suppress it.  There's no point - even if you could get rid of copy, a user can still select, copy and paste the content into a new page.  The fact that they can read it makes it copy-able (horrible constructed word, I apologise, but I can't think of a better way to say it)

You could make the text uncopyable; not foolproof, but it would keep the honest people honest.

  1. Add a div macro and set the class to noselect.

  2. Cut all the text on the page and paste it into the body of the div macro
  3. Add a CSS Stylesheet macro with the following in the body (you could instead add this to Look and feel --> CSS):

    .noselect {
        -webkit-touch-callout: none;
        -webkit-user-select: none;
        -khtml-user-select: none;
        -moz-user-select: none;
        -ms-user-select: none;
        user-select: none;
