Edit Confluence Space Permission with ScriptRunner & Groovy

Hi there,

i got the task to sync a JIRA Permission Scheme (Groups and Users) to a linked Confluence Space.

The idea was to use a ScriptRunner CronJob for this, instead of creating a fully fledged Confluence plugin. Or am i better served when i create a "default" Confluence plugin?

My search about using ScriptRunner & Groovy to manipulate Confluence Space Permissions did not lead to any success.

What i need whould be:

  • loading the exsisting Confluence Permissions
  • adding new
  • deleting old ones 

Reading and parsing the JIRA Permissions over Rest should not be so hard.

I'm thankful for any suggestions.


Thank you in advance,

A Scheduled Job seems a good idea. I would create a rest end point using ScriptRunner for Confluence and then run the job in ScriptRunner for JIRA. 

That job would poll the permissions and send it to the rest end point from ScriptRunner for Confluence that would create/remove the permissions

Perfectly doable
