"Comment internally" in Confluence

Is it possible to post "comments internally" in Confluence so that external users who have access to the Space won't be able to view internal comments?

I know internal comments are possible in JIRA, but my question is specific to Confluence Spaces.

Hi @Preetam

Unfortunately this feature is supported natively in Confluence. Neither is Atlassian going to implement it in near future. Refer to CONFSERVER-2535 for more details.

However, you may want to try using this macro - HideElements.

Hope this does the job for you!

Unfortunately, the poster is on Cloud so Hide Elements is not really an option.

Being on Confluence Cloud I don't know that there are any great options for doing this. If you were on server then Hide Elements combined with the show-if macro or a user macro that does the same thing as show-if could work well. But with cloud you are more limited in terms of options.
