How do you restrict a member from viewing certain pages?

I have no access to 'cant view' option

Have you tried turning it off and on again? or read this page about restrictions?

Hi Nina,

You can't restrict a certain person from a single page. Your options are:

  • Lock down the entire space from view using Space Permissions and then allow certain users/groups Can View.
  • Edit the page restrictions, as you were, click Viewing and Editing restricted (as in the first screenshot in the link that @Michael sent you) and then allow certain users/groups Can View (or Edit).

Lastly, there's a feature request for the setting you were looking for. You can vote on the request in order to show your interest for the feature and leave a comment with your usage case there. If you watch it you'll receive updates about any changes.

  • CONFSERVER-42864Allow page restrictions to let you list users who can't view/edit pages

Let us know if you have any trouble.

Kind regards,
