"Include" access without full permissions

Miriam Liszewski Jun 09, 2017

We have a space which includes some pages we would like to share with a client. We do not want the clent to see other pages in the space or the comments on the shared pages. 

I could create a new space and copy over each page manually but we will need to update both pages everytime there is a change.

I'd like to use the include macro, or something similar, so that the pages are always in sync. It appears I cannot use the include macro without actually giving them access to the original space/page which defeats the purpose. 

Is there a way to do this?

No, the include macro respects the permissions on the source data, you can't bypass that in any way.

Is there any other way to do what I want to do without manually copying and pasting? Another macro or even a way to prevent users from viewing comments on a page?

Put the pages you want to share in a different space that is readable to all, but with very limited edit rights (and no comment at all possibly)

Hi Miriam,

the MultiExcerpt-Plugin gives you the opportunity to override security by including an excerpt from another Confluence space.

But I would be careful with disabling the security mechanisms from Confluence...
