    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.


      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      The basic use-case is to allow anonymous access to a single page within an otherwise restricted space. See: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/95242/how-to-grant-anonymous-access-only-to-a-single-page-in-confluence

      Currently you can only restrict pages, but you can't explicitly grant permissions.

      Atlassian Update, October 29 2018

      Hi all,

      Thanks for all your votes and comments on this suggestion.

      We’re planning on making a number of improvements to Confluence permissions over the coming 6-9 months, and this is one of the suggestions we’re strongly considering implementing. We fully appreciate the current difficulties involved in not being able to ‘add’ page restrictions within a hierarchy which is overall more restrictive.

      We haven’t started investigating the complexities involved in potentially implementing this suggestion yet, but we’ll provide you with an update once this investigation start.

Jenny | Confluence Server Product Manager

      Note: This issue seems to differ from CONF-7089 only in phrasing, but since it has acquired substantial votes, it won't be closed as a duplicate.
