Confluence 5.9.1-OD-60  

A better way to restrict pages

In this release we've made it easier to restrict who can edit and view your pages in Confluence. 

The new padlock icon  at the top of the page gets you straight into our brand new restrictions dialog (you can still get there using

Unable to render {include} The included page could not be found.
, but why click twice?).

There are three options:

  • No restrictions - keep the page open to everyone (hint: use this for a quick way to remove existing restrictions). 
  • Edit restrictions - limit who can edit a page, but keep it open for everyone to view.
  • Edit and view restrictions - set exactly who can view, and who can edit. It's the most flexible option. 

Here's how it looks:

The padlock icon at the top changes when a page is restricted , or when it's inheriting view restrictions from another page . We'll also give you a warning in the restrictions dialog when your page is affected by restrictions on other pages.
