Confluence page restriction

Below are the scenario for space "Product"

Products
    -> Page A
        -> A
        -> B
        -> C
    ->Page B
        -> P
        -> Q
        -> R


I have create a space called "Products", Under that "Page A" &"Page B" are the child pages of the given space and they have child pages respectively.


Now, I have given view restriction to "Page A" accessible only by "Group 1"
Similarly, I have given view restriction to "Page B" accessible only by "Group 2"


I know that page restriction are inherited from Parent.


There are some content from each child page, which should be accessible to each group. I have tried with include page macro, excerpt macro as well as page properties macro, but not able to content due to permission issue

Is there any better way where each group can access some content of the restricted pages?

>There are some content from each child page, which should be accessible to each group

But you've deliberately restricted the pages so they're not accessible to the groups!

Really easy solution though:

  • Create page C and do not restrict the read access (I often have a page called something like "Space Shared pages" or "Common space includes")
  • Take out the parts you need to share, and put them in their own pages, under page C
  • In pages beneath both A and B, use include/include-excerpt to draw the shared content in

Thanks Nic, Its working :)
