How to hide the "space tools" menu from anonymous users in "confluence cloud"?

Hi there,

How can I hide the "space tools" menu from anonymous users in our implementation of Confluence Cloud?

I've found some content on doing this for Confluence Server implementations, but nothing helpful for cloud.

 

Help!

Thanks.

Hi Wendy,

I haven't worked out how to hide the "Space tools" menu only for anonymous users, but I have a workaround to hide it for all users.

In your space, go to "Space tools" > "Look and Feel" > "Sidebar, header and footer", put the following in the Sidebar box and save:

 {style}div.space-tools-section{display: none}{style}

After doing this, you can get back to the "Space tools" menu by manually entering the URL in your browser (replacing URL with your Cloud address and SPACEKEY with your space key):

https://URL.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/viewspacesummary.action?key=SPACEKEY

Not exactly what you want, but I hope this is close enough to help you a bit.

Hello Sam,

Was trying this solution for one of my customer facing documentation space. I could not get the Sidebar section under the specified location mentioned in the solution above. 

 

Please refer to the screenshot attached for more clearification.

Since SPA is enabled, the workaround introduced here is no longer available. Please vote for https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-57870 if you want an option to hide sidebar from anonymous users.
