I'm setting up the permissions and restrictions for our Confluence Cloud.
What needs to be done are:
What I had tried so far:
Outcome of Scenario 1: I retained ability to view & edit, group A can view all pages but can't create new page. BUT, reporter A who is in Group A can't edit the page, despite given the right to "view and edit" on the page.
Outcome of Scenario 2: Reporter A can view and edit the page, AND is able to add pages to both the parent page of the space and sub-pages.
Ideally, I want users to be able to edit their designated page(s) and add children page(s) to it but disable the ability to add pages to the parent page.
Is there any trick & tip I could use to do that? Or I can't have best of both worlds actually?
Thanks a lot!
Unfortunately the Add page permission in a space gives users the ability to both create new pages and edit existing pages in this space - you can't restrict them to only editing existing pages or where they can create pages. This might sound odd, but makes sense when you consider that Confluence is a wiki, not a CMS / document management system.
I would like to be able to suggest a work around, but because you are also using Cloud you have limited options for coming up with some tricks to deal with this.
Thanks, @James Dellow
We're using Confluence to record research progress and to increase transparency among the researchers in the project. Since we require the users to create their own sub-pages for their almost-finalized data within their space, I guess I'll just monitor and relocate the pages if/when they're created in unintended locations. I manage to get around how they can only create page under a designated space but view the other spaces.
