Private Space between certain users excluding Admins


While poking around the existing answers I did find a question which seems to summarize my concern:

Given that the responses were somewhat outdated and there was no clear answer, I thought I would ask again.

One of our executives wants to share a private space with only other Confluence users of his choosing, excluding other Admins. Is there a way to reliably (and hopefully easily) accomplish this?

Many thanks for any insight you could provide.

No. Well, sort of.

The basic answer is that you are going to have to trust your administrators.

If you use restrictions to hide pages, then your admins will actually experience the same "can't see this page" stuff as your normal users. But your administrators will always have the power to list restricted pages in a space, and then de-restrict them, or change their own profiles to enable themselves access.

The only way to completely stop an admin getting to pages is to put the pages in a separate system that they do not have access to.
