Cannot view pages in a space that I have access

My admin has given me (jwood) full access to the space named "Landscape"

I can see that I have full access to the space

When I try to access the space I get a message that it is a restricted page

The homepage of the space is restricted. So, you won't be able to view any pages in that space until you get access to homepage.

Being the space admin, you can check who has access the homepage from Space Settings > Permissions > Restricted Pages. Then you can ask them to grant you access to it.

Alternatively, you can remove the restrictions and add them again once you got access to it.

Refer to Add or Remove Page Restrictions for more details.

Thanks Veera. That helped me resolve the issue.

Hi @jwood 

Pages on a space can be restricted to specific people. 
This restriction over rules the space permission.

Hence you will need to do the following:

  1. Find someone who has access to the page and can edit
  2. Ask the person to check page restrictions and grant you the view/edit access.

After this you should be able to view the page. Trpeat the above for each page.


Hi Ismael,

If the page is restricted will it have a lock icon on it - i.e. the opposite of the unlocked icon below?

Also, is it possible that all of the pages in the space are restricted? Is there a setting somewhere that would make newly created pages restricted?
