confluence page restriction


We are using Confluence 5.5.7. How can I share a page with someone who do not have access to the Space this page is under? I do not wish to change the hierarchy of the space.

A couple ideas of how to share the content of a page - using existing Confluence functionality -  if you don't want to add a user to Space Permissions are (I) copy the page to a space they do have permissions for or (II) export the page to Word or PDF. 

Do either of those work? There are no options I'm aware of to have a user see a page dynamically if they don't have permissions in the space.  For example, the Include macro will not work for users without permissions in the space where the page is located.

Good luck!

I should have mentioned that one can select Tools>Copy to copy an entire page (including any associated attachments) to another place in your confluence instance.
