Can you disable access to Confluence dashboard for some users?

Hi,

I have a space that is directed only for one group of users and it is set up in such a way that a home button directs to that page. So this group of users is theoretically locked to that space which is the purpose of this setting.

But... If a user belonging to that group knows how to get to the Confluence dashboard (because they know how to construct the link), or use some other ways (and they do exist), they will see the dashboard with all the information that is not meant for them.

So is there a way to enforce a restriction so that the user can never get to the confluence dashboard?

 

thanks smile

Hi Sabina,

there is a plugin (unfortunately not free) that can do this for you: Custom Dashboards for Confluence

With that, you can assign different dashboards to different user groups. 

Cheers

There's also this solution which is free but requires you to know a little but about your permission groups:
