Confluence: How do I restrict people to only see limited spaces

We have 20 spaces set up and I want to limit people to only have access to one space.

Is that possible? If so, how do I do it?

It seems like spaces and page restrictions only give access to the space/page rather than restrict access from the space/page.

I don't want to have to go through every space and give access to 323 users only to then cause the space to be restricted from 2 people.

Confluence space/page restrictions function by restricting editing/viewing TO a set of people or groups, not FROM. So my suggestion would be to create a group that includes everyone minus the 2 people you want restricted from viewing those spaces. Then you can restrict each space viewing to the group you created.

This seems SUPER onerous. Is there a better solution? (We have a LOT of spaces...)

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink
