I have been asked to find a way to block users from accessing a particular Atlassian Cloud site (Jira and Confluence on atlassian.net) from mobile devices. At minimum the apps should be blocked, but mobile browsers should as well.
Is this possible, and if so, how?
There's no way to do this.
If you were on Server, you could do some stuff on the networking side - stick Jira and Confluence behind a proxy, with which you could then code some stuff that tried to do browser or device identification before letting the connection through (that would stop casual users doing it, but not people like us who can spend 30 seconds setting up clients to lie to your detection code)
On Cloud, there is nothing.
Hey there @Rob Horan ! My name is Stephanie Zhang and I'm a product manager on the Confluence Cloud mobile team. I'd love to understand a little more about your use cases and your concerns around mobile usage.
Any chance you'd be willing to chat with me? As a token of my appreciation you'd be eligible for a $70 giftcard. Let me know your availability szhang5@atlassian if so.
