For => yes

From => no

Please elaborate on what you're trying to achieve?

The purpose of this view restriction is for only HR to see these pages that consist of HR information.

users in the group "confluence-administrators" will always see everything...

restrictions always do include the persons/groups you set. admins will bypass this

Yes, you just need to go to this page, and then Browse > Space Admin (You need to be an Admin of the Space) > Permissions, and just give to you the individual permission. That way only you will have access to that page.

I hope this helps.

users inside the group confluence-administrators will bypass any space permissions i guess...

Hi there,

As describe by Ole, it is not possible for you to retrict a meber of confluence-administrators group to access the page. Mentioned by our documentation here, member of confluence-administrators group is a super user which will bypass any space permission.

However, if a page is restricted, the member of this group won't be able to access the page (hidden) without knowing the direct URL to the page as describe here.

Hope it clarify your doubts.

Coming back to this, there was a Space that was restricted to certain people not including, and this space was still visible to me as an administrator on the Dashboard.
