So my company is testing out Confluence, and I made a dummy account (using my account) in order to test out the restriction capabilities and whatnot. When I went to restrict the dummy (using my admin account) from viewing a page, it lists in the resitriction box that I restricted myself as well. When I click to remove my restriction and close the box and open it back up, I am restricted again. I can only remove my restriction when I remove the dummy one first, and then mine. On top of that, when I log into the dummy account after restriction, I can still view the page.
What is happening? I tried it with a few different accounts and it still happens.
I think you have already discovered this but yes the permissions are ones that restrict actions to a user as opposed to retricitng the action away from the user. That is to say, if editting is restricted to 'bob' then only 'bob' can edit and no one else can. For further deails on page permissions, I would advise having a look at the following page.
