Space Privacy - Extranet for Confluence

Data protection at user level

Known Issue: Slow upgrade / app activation

Although we have improved the performance, when updating to version 2.2 or activating the app, it may take some time to synchronize with the internal Confluence groups if you have many extranet spaces, users or groups.

(warning) You can make this faster for future updates if you uncheck the Synchronize users and group memberships on plugin updates or reactivation option.

Re-index users

You must re-index users so that searching for email addresses works correctly. This is done during app installation if you haven't disabled the Activation Tasks, otherwise you can re-build the whole search index manually

Release Notes 2.2.1

Bugfix Release


  • Problems with Internet Explorer 11 and Confluence < 6.7
  • Issues with Confluence Questions vote function
  • Search with double quotes may lead to query error
  • Quicksearch shows restricted users in Confluence 6.9

Compatibility note

At the moment we are not fully compatible with Confluence Questions, meaning the privacy features may not work as expected. See Compatibility with Confluence Questions for further details.

Release Notes 2.2

Huge performance boost for the people directory and full search, for enterprise-sized instances where Space Privacy was unusable.


  • The people directory works correctly with large numbers of users.
  • The full search works correctly with large numbers of extranet spaces.
  • Pagination in the people directory and full search works as intended.
  • No labels
