Confluence page restriction

Below are the scenario for space "Product"

    -> 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 :)

I find this solution very unsatisfying.

We have the same problem and I don't have an answer yet:

The restricted page can also have some common info that should be shared to all users, so it should imho be possible to include that part of the page via include excerpt to a 3rd page in an open space, that everybody has access to.

(in the suggested solution we would have to export a whole bunch of different page parts into the open space, that would make editing the pages very cumbersome and it would destroy our organic hierarchy and content-flow massively... )

Any solutions to that?
