Restrictions for group xyz without group confluence users

Hi *

We have a lot of spaces in our confluence. All users are in the group confluence-users to login.

Now we have some third party people, who just should see the the space xyz.

If they are only in group xyz without confluence-users, they could not login.

If they are although in group confluence-users, they could see too much.

Any simple way to make and let it simple :-)

Create a second group for them, and give that group "can use" permission, and permission to see XYZ, but no other spaces.

Then delete them from confluence-users.

It's not ideal - what you really should do is revise the whole lot - use confluence-users to mean "can log in" and absolutely nothing else, but there could be quite a lot of work to be done to implement that cleanly.

Hi Beitmann,

You can provide "Can-Use" permission for group xyz on "Global Permission" and give the necessary permission for this group on the selected spaces.

Hope it helps.

Oh yeah, need to remove them from confluence-users as Nic mentioned.
