This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Restrictions
The documentation states that a Space admin can edit page restrictions. I was trying to do so, but as I don't have view permissions even for the page, it appears it doesn't let me do so, even if I have Space admin rights.
You have rights to edit the page rights, not the page itself. So you have to edit the page restrictions first, then you can edit. Go to space tools to view the restricted pages, and change from there (Space Tools -> Page Restrictions). There you will see a list and a note:
Restricted pages are those that have had either 'View' or 'Edit' restrictions enabled on the page edit screen.
This page allows a space admin to remove any page restriction within this space.
I didn't mean edit the page, I meant this page restriction/rights editing is failing. Whenever I click on a lock icon to remove a restriction, it just goes to the page. The page then shows: "You do not have permission to view this page." And also above it shows a warning, confirming I do have space admin rights: "You have temporary access to administrative functions. Drop access if you no longer require it. For more information, refer to the documentation."
Are you on the cloud or server edition? The docs say
"Space Admin and System Administrator access to restricted pages
Users with 'Admin' permissions in a space, or users with the System Administrator global permission can remove restrictions from pages, even if the page restriction prevents them from viewing the page. Go to Space Administration > Restricted Pages.
Efren, I've come across the same issue, as a Space admin, I cannot edit page restrictions on a page that I don't have edit access to. Quite annoying that I have to ask someone who might not be an administrator, but who has edit access to grant permissions to restricted pages. I remember doing this in older versions of the cloud, why was this changed? The documentation is wrong, out of date or there is a bug.
