Remove Inherited Restrictions

I have a space which is restricted so only specific groups can see and edit the space/pages.  We now have a new section within this space we want to open to all users but I cannot removed inherited restrictions from this section.


Is there a way to remove inherited restrictions from pages?  Or to open these pages to everyone so they can see these pages without being able to access any other part of the space?

For those pages that you want people to view, have no view restrictions on the parent pages, as the child pages will adopt the same restrictions. 

Please see below for more info.

Thank you Victor.

The issue is the space itself is restricted to specific groups.  When a new parent page is created it automatically inherits the restrictions from the overall space.  I am trying to figure out if I can prevent a parent page from inheriting the restrictions of the space.  I don't see anywhere that allows me to do that.

I am guessing the only option is to remove the restrictions from the whole space, and add them to the sections we want to "hide" from everyone.


Instead of restricting a page from the space level, you can do the same on the page level. Please see Page permissions. You can still restrict groups or users easier this way.


this problem still persist right? unable to remove inherited restrictions in the particular page in a space. meaning a space have 10 users , and 1 user can only view/edit 1 page but not able to view/edit other pages. 

is very tedious to do the other page permissions to restrict one by one. Meaning have to configure 19pages have to allow 9 users to have permissions, while 1 page to allow 10 users. is there any quick way to do it? 

We have the same issue and have not found an easy solution except a shared and private parent page.
