Is there a way to restrict what Groups a User can see when assigning permissions to a document?
The somewhat simplified use case is:
I am new to Atlassian and am currently assessing Confluence's (On-Demand) capabilities to provide our customers access to documentation on their relevant projects. Confluence seems perfect for this; We create a Space for each Customer, and in each space we create a document heirarchy for the different projects. Using Groups we can control which users can see which projects. i.e.
Customer 1 (Space):
Project 1 - Default access limited to a Group called "Customer 1 - Project 1"
Project 2 - Default access limited to a Group called "Customer 1 - Project 2"
Customer 2 (Space)
Project 1 - Default access limited to a Group called "Customer 2 - Project 1"
Project 2 - Default access limited to a Group called "Customer 2 - Project 2"
This is not possible with Confluence as is. If you don't want Customer 1 to see Customer 2 groups then you need to not give them the ability to provide page restrictions and you would have to manage that for them.
However, I think a better approach, and more standard, is to have an install per customer and then spaces would be represent projects. That would be the most secure method and should cover the scenario you need.
