Using Confluence for external teams

We are using confluence for our internal team, however I'm consider using it for our clients to organise a conference.  Can I separate out the information so that the external groups only see the project they are involved with and none of our other confluence information?

Thanks, Paula

I asked a similar question a while ago (

The way we solved this was by granting access to Confluence using the confluence-users group, but removing that group from the permissions of all spaces. Permissions to spaces are granted to other specific groups so that users who are only members of confluence-users actually have no access until they are given access to at least one other group.

For example, you might have three groups:

  • confluence-users: no access to spaces
  • internal-users: access to all spaces
  • external-users: access to external spaces

I've done the same thing, the problem I'm having is that I don't want the external users to see the update stream. 

What comes up is pretty safe, like updating their picture. Do you know which permission would cover that
