Thomas Rough

Thomas Rough Last update: Jun 15, 2018

As a System Administrator or Confluence Administrator, you can choose which spaces and/or user groups have the option to export content with Scroll PDF Exporter.

To do this, simply navigate to Confluence administration > Scroll Runtime > Advanced Plugin Settings > select Scroll PDF Exporter from the dropdown. You can then edit the specific advanced plugin settings depending on the restrictions that you want to apply. 

Note

If you experience system instability with large PDF exports you can also try to enable the external process PDF conversion. You can find out more about this process here.

Advanced plugin settings

The advanced plugins work together and their parameters are described below:

export.restricted.to.spaces

* (default)

If the value is set to *, all spaces will have the option to export.

If no value is set, every space will be restricted from exporting.

By defining a space key for this value, it is possible to whitelist a space so that the option to export is available. Multiple space keys can be entered in this field by using a comma separated list.
