Can I restrict a space but allow a child page?

I would like to restrict everybody besides HR to access the HR space but allow certain managers to access a one, specific child page. Is this possible?

Dear @Konrad Woloszyn ,

afaik this is not possible. The recommended way is to open the space for all but creating two top level child pages eg. public and internal.

internal is restricted. If you would like to make pages visible to others, move them as children below public.

So long


In addition to the answer by @Thomas Deiler If you want to maintain the structure in your 'restricted'/ internal page tree, I would suggest the include page macro -

You can then create your public content in the public tree, and then create an empty child page of the restricted page which has the page include macro to pull in the public content.

Hello James, thanks for the suggestion.

What would be the reason to include that macro? Would is sync the content of my public section into the restricted one?



The behaviour would be to lookup and pull the public page content when the restricted page loads, rather than save a 'sync' copy.

This sounds like a very useful feature! Thanks a lot for your advice! 


Will this work cross-space too? 

Do you have any other shareable applications of macros that you'd be excited to share :)?


Cheers and have a happy valentines day,


Hey @Konrad Woloszyn , yes it will work cross space.

I recommend that you familiarise yourself with , that will give you all the details you need on the macros available and how they work.

Hello James,

thanks a lot for your help and time to advise me :)! 

Have a good start of the week. Cheers,
