Hiding the People Directory
The People Directory provides a list of all users in your Confluence system.
If you need to disable the People Directory set the following system properties on your application server command line:
- To disable the People Directory for anonymous users:
- To disable the People Directory entirely:
This workaround will prevent the People directory from appearing on the dashboard, but if you navigate to the profile of a user, and then click on the "People" in the breadcrumb link (Dashboard >> People >> FullName >> Profile) or you go to the URL directly
<CONFLUENCE_INSTALL>/browsepeople.action, you will be able to access the people directory.
To workaround this, set up your Apache webserver in front of Confluence and redirect requests to this URL.
