How to disable anonymous access to all personal spaces in one time

We have enabled anonymous access on site level to allow anonymous user to access to a public space which is anonymous access enabled. Then we find many people post contents, such as blog, on their personal space which is anonymous access enabled. But we don't want the anonymous users to access such contents on people's personal spaces. So is there any way to disable anonymous access to all the personal spaces in one time?

Hi there,

Highly recommend you to create a database backup dump and execute the given SQL query below on your staging environment as a safety precaution

DELETE FROM spacepermissions WHERE spaceid IN (SELECT spaceid FROM SPACES WHERE SPACETYPE ='personal') AND PERMGROUPNAME IS NULL AND PERMUSERNAME IS NULL;

The above query will delete every anonymous permission on every personal spaces. Hope it helps.

Cheers,

Use the Confluence Command Line Interface with the runFromSql action with SQL to select all personal spaces for the removePermissions action - something like:

confluence --action runFromSql --sql "select spacekey as "space" from spaces where spacetype = 'personal'" --common "-a addPermissions --permissions view --userId anonymous" --database confluence-3.5.13 --driver postgresql

This is a legal Confluence activity, no need to shutdown Confluence or worry about database backup. Use the latest snapshot - confluence-cli-2.6.0-SNAPSHOT-distribution.zip
