Page restriction problem when edit restriction is enabled

Hello everybody,

I'm experiencing problem with one confluence page. When I add some edit restrictions on the page then users are not allowed to see its content. I don't understand what is wrong because when not edit restrictions are applied, everyghing is fine but when I add edit restrictions then users are immediately not able to see its content. I have checked general permissions, space permissions and page restrictions and I don't see any problem there.

Any idea what could be wrong or what I should check?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Radek,

from the screenshot provided, it seems that you defined view restriction and not edit ones. Please, take care to select the correct radio button at the top of the restriction popup.

Hope this helps.


Hi Fabio,

thank you for the answer but please check the picture again, there are added 5 people to edit restrictions, no view restrictions applied. Selected radio button has no impact on the current state.
