How can edit restriction be distributed / inherited to child pages Edited

Is there a way do (automatically)  distribute a "not edit" restriction to all child-pages of a certain page? Or do I have to change that attribute at each single page manually?

View restrictions are inherited, but edit restrictions are not. You must manually make the restriction. There are ways to automate it, however. For a while we used the Confluence Command Line Interface to do this. You could set up a scheduled task that would run on a certain period that could apply the edit restriction to a page and all its children. It worked well for us for a while till we decided that we would change up how we do some stuff and it was no longer needed.
