"Add a page" level restrictions

Currently, in my company, a user does not have permissions to create/add a page inside a Space.

Is there a way to give permission to the user to be able to add a new page within a parent page only, and not the entire space?

Or we can only give permission to add a page within the Space?

Hi SG,

It isn't possible per page. You can add viewing restrictions on the other content in the space if the other users shouldn't access. 

Actually, I wanted to restrict users to only be able to create a page under a parent page.

Ex: Lets say, there is a space A


which has two pages. B and C


Can it be done that users be able to add/create pages under B and not C?


By giving permission rights to add a page in the entire space, the users can add a page anywhere in the space. which is not ideal as people can misuse it.


Is there no way to control the creation of pages under only a parent page? and not the entire space?

No, that is not possible with the way space permissions are setup. 

Ohh, thanks Edwin.


So what according to you should be a workaround?


Specifically for allowing users to create a page within page limits
