Revoke access for unlicensed users from Jira Service Management
If you're using Confluence as a knowledge base for Jira Service Management, you can choose to allow all active users and customers (that is logged in users who do not have a Confluence license) to view pages in specific spaces. This permission can only be turned on via Jira Service Management Server and Data Center.
To revoke access for unlicensed users:
- Go to Administration > General Configuration > Global Permissions.
- Choose Edit Permissions
- Deselect the 'Can Use' permission under Unlicensed Access.
Unlicensed users will no longer be able to access pages in your Confluence site. This can only be re-enabled via Jira Service Management.
You can also choose to revoke access for individual spaces from the Space Permissions screen in each space.

This section only appears on the Global Permissions page in Confluence if you have linked a space to your service project (as a Knowledge base), and chosen to allow all active users and customers to access without a Confluence license. See Set up a knowledge base for self-service in the Service Management Server and Data Center documentation for more info.
