How to update space permissions in bulk?


We have new admin group say, "conf-admins" created via Crowd.

We need to add this group to all confluence spaces with all access (admin) .

Any idea how we can do this via ScriptRunner for Confluence?

Hi Sowndarya,

I was able to write a script which should accomplish what you need. Please find it at the following link:

Kind regards,

Thankyou Tony.

I wrote similar to script to set default permissions to all spaces and added the new admin groups to default permissions on global level.

Hi @Tony Gough [Adaptavist] ,

could you kindly help me with the execution of the script?

When I paste it into the console in SR under Confluence version 7.13.2 (SR 6.39.0), I get a warning.

When I make the suggested change to the script, I get an error message.


Please assist me with the next steps.


Kind regards,


@Tony Gough [Adaptavist] is there a script to remove a group from all spaces ?

can you please help ?

Hi there!

If anyone is still searching for a solution on how to manage multiple space and page permissions without scripting in Confluence here it is!

We just released our new app “Permission Management for Confluence”.

So feel free to give it a try and let us now, if you like it or what you need.

Best regards


Hi Stella,

this is a user community. As an App vendor you'll need to follow special rules, for example

Identify yourself as a partner: Make sure the user is aware you are affiliated with a partner company; for example, by placing the name of your company in your user name in {curly brackets} or -dashes- (note that regular brackets no longer work and have been automatically converted to dashes). If you are mentioning your own products or services, make sure you include wording to make it clear that you are affiliated with the company providing those products or services.
