This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Restrictions
We have a Space where everyone can View, and a Page in that Space that has Viewing and Editing Restricted to a few users. None of that page's parents have any restrictions.
Yet one of the named users can see the page but can't edit it, despite being one of those explicitly named as having View and Edit privileges for that page.
The only way I can grant him edit privileges is to name him on the Space Permission level instead. But the Page Restriction should work. Any idea why it isn't when none of the parent pages have restrictions?
Thank you for the response, and that is how I got around the issue. But shouldn't this work instead:
What we want is for that user to only be able to edit that one page, but view everything else in that space. If I do what you suggest, and what I already did as a workaround, gives that user edit permission throughout the space, and that is not what I want.
Why does giving Read/Write to a user for a page not allow them to edit that page?
The "hierarchy of doing things is
The User must have edit capabilities associated with their Permissions level to the Space
If they have Edit capabilities in their Permissions, then you can Restrict which of those people can edit a particular page by using the Edit Restrictions
So if their Space Permission is view only, they cannot edit any page regardless of Page Restrictions.
Note that Page View Restrictions and Page Edit Restrictions work differently and independently.
Page View Restrictions are automatically inherited by its Child pages and hence you can create a "private" set of pages for a select set of Users of the Space - none of the other Space Users can see those pages exist
Page Edit Restrictions must be applied page-by-page but of course to edit you must be able to view so if Page View Restrictions have been set, the Editor must also be included in the Page View Restrictions. If no Page View Restrictions have been set, then all Users can see but you can still set Page Edit Restrictions to the select people
The answers above give you the solution. You CAN give a user READ access to the Space and EDIT only certain pages, but you must let them "into the house" first, giving them "Add Page" permission on the Space level.
Keep in mind you will then have to ensure they are restricted FROM Editing (View Only) the other pages on the Parent Page Level. (children inherit parent permissions)
