Is it possible to set permissions on a blog entry?

Jenny Aquilno Jun 21, 2013

I just attempted to restrict access to a Confluence blog post and was surprised to find that the button to restrict access does not appear when creating or editing blog posts. Instead it looks like the blog has the same access settings as the Space it was created in.

I realize I can create a normal page instead of a blog in order to restrict access however I have yet to find a way to display normal pages as well as the blog post macro renders blog posts. =(

I've searched the documentation and Atlassian Answers and have come up empty. Am I completely overlooking something or is it really not possible to apply blog entry level access restrictions?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide. =)

Bummer... Thanks for providing an answer and for linking to the JIRA issues that address this question though. I have voted on https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-3305 and am hopeful that this will make it into a future release of Confluence. =)
