Is there a way to inherit editing permissions?

I would like the pages that are created within the main page to inherit the editing restriction that is given to the main page.

Hi @Luis Gerardo ,

If your page's parent page has restrictions around who can view it, then your page inherits those restrictions and "Anyone" on your page really means "Anyone who isn't restricted from viewing the parent page." You can tell if your page is inheriting restrictions from any of its parent pages by looking for the content There are inherited view restrictions under the restrictions window's dropdown menu and above the user name search bar.

More info in this KB -

I understand, but what happens if I restrict the main page so that they can only be seen by some and edited by me, that cannot be inherited in the pages.

Are you referring to the home page as the main page? If restrictions are applied on the home page and child pages created under it, then restrictions should be inherited by default.

Yes. For example, if I give restricted editing to the home page, the subpages that are created do not maintain said editing restriction

Only view permissions will be inherited. Without additional Apps this is not to be configured. There is a Suggestion opened with Atlassian. In case you are interested feel free to watch the suggestion.

Alternatively apps like "Edit Permission Inheritance" can be purchased via marketplace to inherit the edit permissions (at least for Confluence server, for Cloud there is no App known to me doing the same).
