confluence link question

Dear partners, 

Would it be possible to add link to some pages in space A which is not allowed for everyone in space permission setting ? For example , we would like to use page in space B to add link target to pages in space A, but it's not allowed for each account in it . Thanks a lot.

no, you can't set a restriction to a link, just to pages.

The only thing you can do, is hiding the link from viewing for certain people. I've written an article about hiding content from Confluence pages:

But be careful, the only secure method of hiding something is via permissions or restrictions. You should not use the hiding mechanisms for confidential content.

Of course, if a user clicks on a link, and he is not allowed to see the target page, he gets an error message.

But he's seeing the link to the target.

Hi Anderson

I don't see why it wouldn't work. Have you tried it? This is not quite the same, but we have many links to SharePoint sites some of which are restricted.
