I need to evaluate the pros and cons of different methods of managing access to certain content. I'm sure I'm way overthinking this but if there are additional factors I haven't considered please chime in.
The content is "advanced" but not sensitive or super-secret. It could confuse an average user of our wiki space so we'd like to limit it to a certain group of power users.
The two main options are,
The first option keeps everything in the same space, which is good. We'd have to maintain a user group with access to the content, which is fine. I'd want to grant several others admin permissions to help with that. However, we're concerned that contributors might feel inhibited by the unlikely possibility that a permissions glitch could inadvertently expose details. And I believe (but am not certain) that if restricted pages are listed out in say a content by label macro, or search results, they wouldn't appear in the listing to someone who couldn't see those pages, is that correct? We don't want people to find inaccessible pages and try to click through to them.
The second option has greater confidence that complicated stuff stays less accessible, but there is the overhead of maintaining a second space, which is less desirable. It would be in the same instance, though.
Are there other factors I should consider? If you've made a choice like this, how did you decide?
