      Description

      If a user has at least view permissions on a space they can purge any page in that space using the URL:

      /pages/purgetrashitem.action?key=&contentId=

      and the right contentId and space key.

      A purge can be performed even if the page has not been marked for deletion.

      This issue has been replicated and verified by the Confluence support team:
