At the moment, when the number of users with can use permission in Confluence exceeds the user limit in the license, all users become read-only until the problem get fixed.
We could have a less disruptive approach to let licensed users work in Confluence. Two possible options are:
- Only new added users over the license limit are read-only.
- No users can be added (or received from an external user directory) over the license limit.
The sysadmins should receive a clear notification of this once they reach the user limit and even a warning if they are near to reach it (i.e.: 90% total user capacity).
