Can I restrict access to or hide the dashboard from certain users or groups

We are wanting to use Confluence for a couiple fo things, some of which we would like to share to our customer/partner population. I know I can set a default sapce for them but I would also like to "hide" or restruct access to the Dashboard for particular groups, or at least hide/restrict what they can see on the dashboard. Can this be done please?

You can restrict access to viewing pages and spaces by user and group:

For setting page permissions:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Page+Restrictions

Take note of “Page Security Rules” section.

For setting space permissions:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Space+Permissions+Overview

All understood however my question relates specifically to the Dashborad - I can't find any way to restrcit access to it, better still, hide it, or at least to customise what is displayed on it - for instance if I can't hide the dashboard itself can I at least hide the All Updates list?

Sorry for not commenting on the dashboard. The wiki/Confluence dashboard in a hosted instance has minimal customization and you cannot remove the recent activity stream. That said, with the pages locked down, people will only be able to view the content you want them to be able to view and if they click on a link it will take them to a page advising they do not have the permissions to view it.

Thanks Nik - but...bugger )}-; I don't want people knowing that, for instance, meeting minutes have been posted for internal meetings - it may make them curious enough to try to attempt to find a back door.

It's been well over a year, but I'd like to "+1" this question. Confluence is beginning to take hold in our org. But the inability to build a space as a collaboration point with a single client that seals off that client's users (assigned via group) from the rest of the site (including the dashboard, which is an *internal* resource) is a huge missing feature.
