Hello community, I want to bulk add a group-permission to all pages in a space. I already came up with a script, but it does not work as expected yet. 

  • When I run this script for a complete space (with about 300 pages), the script does nothing, it does not even show any output at all, also no error message. 
  • When I run this script for e.g. only one page (restricted via a simple if-statement in the for loop) the permission is successfully set. 
  • When I run this script for the first 3 pages (also restricted via a simple if statement and a counter) the permission is set for the last page of the iteration. Strangely the first two pages do not get the group-permission added. 

Here is my current (simplified) implementation. 

import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Label
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager
import com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space
import com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.SpaceManager
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.content.SpaceService
import com.atlassian.confluence.core.ContentPermissionManager
import com.atlassian.user.GroupManager
import static

def spaceManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpaceManager)
def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)
def spaceService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpaceService)
def contentPermissionManager =ComponentLocator.getComponent(ContentPermissionManager)

Space sourceSpace = spaceManager.getSpace("TEST")

def groupPermission = ContentPermission.createGroupPermission(EDIT_PERMISSION, "editor-group")

for (Page page : pageManager.getPages(sourceSpace, true)) {
  def currentPage = page
  contentPermissionManager.addContentPermission(groupPermission, currentPage)

What is wrong here? Do I miss something along the lines of a commit/save for each and every page? 

Thanks, Christoph
