Permission within a space only for a page

Hi All,

I got a special request from a Confluence space admin: give permission for a user for only one single page but the user must not see other pages in the space. My first guess was to make the page to a Home Page for the space but it was decined because of the strict structure of the parent page-sub-pages configuration.

Can you please give me a suggestion or help. Somebody said that it can be managed but I don't know how.

So specifically this page is a sub page whivh the user has to be accessed but for the parent page not and neither the othet pages too.

Thank you in anticipation!

we have done something similar:

- create a group A. In this group, there is everyone who should see the space except the one person that should only see the single page

- Group A and "the one" get permissions for the whole space

- Restrict every "first level page" to group A, so "the one" could not see anything anymore

- Put the "one single page" on first level and restrict this page to group A and "the one".

That should do it, as long as there are no new "first level pages". These must be restricted to group A then.

Best regards


Hi Thomas,  Just to make sure I understand,  you would assign both groups at the space level.  How do you restrict the pages specifcally to not include the "one"?  Do you have have to go into every page individually?

You can't open up a single page from a space, but you can create a page in a different space that the user has access to and use the {secure-include} macro from the Perimeter Plugin: Regards, David Peterson
