Restricting Access/documents


I have a few questions and would appreciate the answers:

  1. Can we restrict downloading documents to the laptop or removable media from Confluence?
  2. Can we restrict the URL?
  3. Can a document be a password protected?

  1. If something on a network can be read, in any shape or form, it's been "downloaded".  So, no.
  2. What does "restrict the url" mean?
  3. Confluence simply serves up attachments.  If those files support password protection, then that can be included before they are uploaded and Confluence will serve them up with that.  It does not add any passwords or other protection (beyond "you can log into Confluence and see its content").   There are a couple of add-ons that can add page/attachment protections though, and they may be worth a look.
