for a certain number of users we plan to grant only a limited time of working hours wherein employees can access confluence.
Does anyone has an basic idea of how such a task could be achieved.
I think a user would still need to log in to check time-permission but to redirect him to a "timeout message page" with no further access instead of entering dashboard.
Your ideas and suggestions are appreciated.
Update 8. Jul. 2011
Thanks for all of your suggestions until now. I did some testing with reporting-plugin meanwhile. My setup is now as follows:
An employee becomes a member of a timeout-group. I check this group membership on a global bases and I did set a time-frame which will be checked against global time. If the user belongs to this group and he is not within this time-frame, he will be redirected to a specific page that shows a timeout message and than redirects this user again to the log-out page.
This works now for working hours and for saturdays and sundays. I would need to embed a calendar to get a fully working version of this setup, because I would need to embed all kinds of holidays too – quite complicated.
May you have more suggestions of how to achieve such a task.
You should be able to script external timed batched processes to add and remove users from groups (etc) using the Confluence Command Line Interface tool. (I have not tried it...)
This could block their login totally or restrict them to (say) a single read-only space.
We solved this meanwhile by training the personnel in entcroachment or violations of copyright and its consequences and limited access to certain spaces – but NSA made us aware of that there is no working data security excisting, so we have to trust our personnel and get rid of those we cant trust.
