    • 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.

      A customer was complaining about the error message that appears in Confluence if the user does not have permissions to view the content included via an include. As such:

      1. Can we please add a flag to the include macro so that the error message can be turned off so that the page will render seamlessly (with no error messages) regardless of the include existing and the viewers permissions.

      Alternative Simple Solution

      1. Can Confluence can handle this warning with a more friendly message (e.g. You do not have permission to view this page.)

      We also need to make note of this in the Confluence documentation - in the user guide I'd suggest.
