Manual

Restrict the export functionality in spaces and for user groups

Thomas Rough

Thomas Rough Last update: Sep 17, 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 values are case-sensitive which means they must match the defined values set in Confluence. Their parameters are described below:

Applying export restrictions in a space

Key Value Description
export.restricted.to.spaces



* (default)

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

(empty)

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

SPACEKEY1,SPACEKEY2

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.

export.disallowed.in.spaces (empty) (default) If the value is left empty, all spaces will have the option to export
* If the value is set to *, all spaces will not have the option to export
SPACEKEY1,SPACEKEY2 By defining a space key for this value, it is possible to blacklist a space so that the option to export is unavailable. Multiple space keys can be entered in this field by using a comma separated list.


Info

Please note that the blacklist advanced plugin setting export.disallowed.in.spaces will take precedence over the whitelist advanced plugin setting export.restricted.to.spaces. For example, if you were to define the same value for different plugin settings:

  • export.restricted.to.spaces = * (all spaces have the option to export)
  • export.disallowed.in.spaces = * (all spaces do not have the option to export)

This would result in all spaces not having the option to export.

Applying export restrictions for user groups

Key Value Description
export.restricted.to.groups.global * (default)

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

(empty) If no value is set, every user group will be restricted from exporting.
USER-GROUP1,USER-GROUP2 By defining a user group for this value, it is possible to whitelist a user group so that the associated users can export. Multiple user groups can be entered in this field by using a comma separated list.
export.disallowed.for.groups.global (empty) (default) If the value is left empty, all users will have the option to export
*  If the value is set to *, the option to export will be unavailable for all users
USER-GROUP1,USER-GROUP2 By defining a user group for this value, it is possible to blacklist a user group from being able to export. Multiple user groups can be entered in this field by using a comma separated list.


Info

Please note that the blacklist advanced plugin setting export.disallowed.for.groups.global will take precedence over the whitelist advanced plugin setting export.restricted.to.groups.global. For example, if you were to define the same value for different plugin settings:

  • export.restricted.to.groups.global = * (all user groups have the option to export)
  • export.disallowed.for.groups.global = * (all user groups do not have the option to export)

This would result in all user groups not having the option to export.
