How do I share content between two spaces with different different user groups?

While trying to duplicate content at two different spaces by the means of the ‘Include Page’ Macro I face the problem that Group A has admission to first space, but no admission to second space. Group B has admission to second space and no admission to first space. I prefer a solution where content changes in one space automatically updates the other space?

I think you answered your own question there. If the original content is in space A, users will need at least View permissions to space A to view the content in space B.

You should set your permissions to look something  like this: 

  • Space A: A group can Create, B group can View
  • Space B: B group can Create, A group can View


Thank your for your quick answer. In this case we want different permissions for the two spaces but we still want to share selected content.


Space A: Group A can create; Group B can't view

Space B: Group B can create; Group A can't view


We have a centralized IT and so we don't have admin rights in our subgroups at the moment

So we have to create Space C for shared objects? We define a Group C as the sum of Group A and Group B.

Are there any alternative solutions?

Thank you very much!

If that is your permissions scheme you will need space C for shared documentation that everyone can see. You can then include into space A and B from space C.

or in Space C with access granted to Group 1 and Group 2: 

Page 1 (and its children) have no Restrictions - Group 1 and Group 2 can view and edit

Page 2 no View Restrictions (Group 1 and 2 can View) but  Edit Restriction to Group 1 only

Page 3 no View Restrictions (Group 1 and 2 can View) but  Edit Restriction to Group 2 only

Note though that Children don't inherit Edit Restrictions from the Parent - i.e. you have to reapply Edit Restriction if someone in Group 1 creates a Child to Page 2 ... noting that Group 2 can't create a Child to Page 2 since that is a form of Editing
