Hello @Charankumar Pulipampula 

This topic is explained in detail in confluence, so I will only refer to the confluence docs.

View restrictions are inherited by child pages and edit restrictions are *not* inherited by child pages, hence if you want to add edit restrictions on child pages you will need to do that explicitly.

Thanks a lot Tarun for your response,


I would like to give the same edit restrictions to child pages by default when the child page created. How can i do

Hello @Charankumar Pulipampula 

Currently default inheritance of edit restrictions is an open request with Atlassian.

You can also vote on it

But since this a common requirement, hence there are some paid plugins supporting this

Hi @Charankumar Pulipampula , 

As Tarun mentioned, there are some apps that can help you accomplish this and Scroll Documents is one of them. Full disclosure, I work on the team at K15t who manages this app. 

But the way it works is you can apply restrictions to the whole page tree in a simple way by defining that page tree as a document. So your document would consist of: 

X (Parent page) 

  • P (Child)
  • Q (Child) 
  • R (Child) 

Then you would have a UI that lets you set the view or edit restrictions in one step and this includes being able to update the edit restrictions so that P, Q, and R also inherit those edit restrictions. As Tarun noted, you can't do this in Confluence alone (at the moment). You can read more about how the restrictions in Scroll Documents works here

Of course, this isn’t the only functionality of the app. You can also version page trees, set workflow statuses, send read requests, and export to PDF or Word with our Scroll Exporter apps, and more. 

If you have any questions, we'd be happy to help or show you a demo of the app. Just get in touch with us:
