Hi Marc,

To build on what @Guilherme Nedel [Atlassian] said, have you looked at the latest (v2.x) version of Confluence Questions? Here's an excerpt of the description of this release:

"In this release we've tackled our highest voted feature request - giving you more control over who can see your questions by adding questions to spaces.

Sometimes a question only relates to one team or project or it might contain private information that shouldn't be visible to everyone. Adding questions to spaces keeps your questions secure, relevant, and organized."

This version was just released earlier this month so not sure you saw it? See more details at



Hey @Tom Crespi, I may be missing something, but it seems that the default setting is that when a question is added in a given space, it's still added in the overall instance-wide Questions area. Is there a way to distinguish which questions should remain only in the space in which they're asked?

I would be interested in this too

Thanks, clear answers. Getting to update friday

Hello Marc, you may use permissions to assign which users have access to Questions today. Though for a more granular control over who can see which question, we advise reviewing this suggestion ticket.
