Is there a limit to how many viewers you can restrict to a page? I seem to run into a problem where the login to view won't work when I have 35 or more restricted viewers.

I don't know the direct answer as to whether there is a limit but am interested in it

But you could create a Permissions Group e.g. "Department Alpha" with everyone in that Department a member

Then in the Restrictions instead of having to remember to add/remove Fred or Mary to each page, you just use the Permissions Group - then when you add John and Sue to the "Department Alpha" group, they automatically get that View/Edit access to the Restricted pages

Hi Rodney, I had tried creating a group but ran into the same problem. Thanks for the suggestion, though! Would you have another workaround?

same problem?  we have Groups certainly with a few dozen members and of course "Confluence Users" groups has hundreds of people.

So I haven't come across the problem so I haven't needed a work around ... but maybe if there is a limit I might be hit with the problem later, hence my interest smile
