    • 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.

      This is the ability to add page permissions for users and groups at the page level. This is different than issue CONF-3701 which talks about restricting permissions.

      In many instances customers have offered a scenario where they have a somewhat restricted space but want to open up individual pages to a larger audience. For instance a technical team might want to open up a specification page to a larger audience, but don't want to open up everything and don't want to create a new space just for the spec. page.

      This might be similar to a scaled down version of the process by which users and groups are given access to view and edit spaces....though this feature would be just for individual pages with the control most likely being offered on the page itself, as with the ability to restrict access.

      This is a related issue, though not clearly defined: CONF-5682

      There is also the case where a page needs to be open to viewing by anonymous users in a space which is otherwise inaccessible. If this issue were implemented, the UI should allow permitting anonymous access. (This was originally raised as CONF-10316.)

      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
