The Global Settings menu "Space Configuration" section allows you to define what data will be accessible on external page in all Spaces.

You can enforce security policy for new and updated shares, you can define if expiration and password is required.




The Global Settings menu contains the "Permissions" section to restrict users that can create, edit and delete External Share links.

By default, any logged-in user is able to create, edit and delete External Share links in any Space they have permission to access.

You can also mark all direct back Confluence link to be automatically removed from page content.


Permission access examples, if you restrict access to

  1. group empty then all users will have access to External Share
  2. group X then all users from group X will have access to External Share
  3. group X and group Y then all users from group X or group Y will have access to External Share


The "Link Settings" options allow links to have forced expiration dates and passwords, as well as a maximum link expiration time

For example, all links require an expiration date to be set, and that date must be less than a month from now

This is a very useful security feature to make sure links can't be accidentally left "Active" forever!
