Personal Privacy - could not block admin for calendar, page, meeting notes

I find that meeting notes, calendar, page have the problem that admin could not be blocked even I set the view and edit restriction. It is the personal privacy issue. Please help to fix it.

What are you trying to do here? And in what product?

For example, I have added a calendar event read by me only. I have set the restriction but system admin can still search out that event.

Is there any way to block system admin viewing/editing contents?

Ah, I see.

No, you need to trust your administrators.

System admin/ Confluence admin / Space admin can see all page contents, am i right?

Not exactly. They can't necessarily read a page if it is restricted. But they can see that it is there in the space, and they can un-protect it.

Same goes for plugins - you could use a security type plugin to hide pages from admins. But there's nothing to stop an admin reconfiguring or removing the plugin.

Here are my findings:

Space Admin can remove the restriction, then he/she can view/edit the page

Confluence Admin can set himself/herself as a Space Admin, then he/she can also view/edit the page

We cannot block System Admin to view/edit:


->Personal Space


->Meeting notes

We cannot block Space Admin/Confluence Admin to view/edit:


->Meeting notes

Am i right? Thanks!

That's more detail than I can remember without checking, but yes, it's what I'd expect. You need to trust your admins.

There is a plug-in called Security and Encryption. Is it a way to block system admin viewing / editing contents?
