Formatting or Marker in Pages Hierarchy (sidebar) to indicate it is restricted

Gokul K Sep 03, 2014

is there a way to format the text/links in the pages hierarchy (sidebar) to show which ones are restricted to end users?

Scenario: I have several pages that are restricted to GROUP1, I want the end users to know that the "Current Projects" page is only viewable by GROUP1 users and not all users. I'd like an easy way to indicate to end users that the pages in the sidebar are restricted.I'd rather color code them or add an icon next to the link.

Hi Gokul,

Your end users will only be able to see on the sidebar those pages which they have the proper permissions.

In your case, if you'd like to have a control over what is being restricted or not, Confluence displays a padlock icon on the byline when a page has current viewing or editing restrictions.

Please let us know if this helps you.
