Restrict a Calendar

Calendars respect the view permissions of their related space. When you create a calendar in a space, or add a related space to an existing calendar, only people with permission to view the space will be able to see the calendar.

If a calendar contains sensitive information, or shouldn't be edited by just anyone, you can further limit who can or edit it by adding restrictions. Restrictions in Team Calendars work in much the same way they do in Confluence, you can restrict a calendar to individual people or Confluence groups.

Change who can view a calendar

If no view restrictions are added, everyone who can view the space can view the calendar. 

To restrict who can view a calendar:

  1. Select Calendars in the Confluence header or space sidebar.
  2. Select to the right of a calendar's name, then choose Restrictions.
  3. Select the Add view restriction radio button.
  4. Search for and select a user, or choose the Group button and search for and select a Confluence group. Repeat this for all people and groups you want to be able to see the calendar.
  5. Select OK

Only the people listed under These people can view this calendar in the restrictions dialog, and the calendar's creator, will be able to see the calendar. Remember, people also need view permissions for the space associated with this calendar to be able to see the calendar.

Change who can edit a calendar

If no edit restrictions are added, everyone who can view the calendar can edit the calendar. 

To restrict who can edit a calendar:

  1. Select Calendars in the Confluence header or space sidebar.
  2. Select to the right of a calendar's name, then choose Restrictions.
  3. Select the Add edit restriction radio button
  4. Search for and select a user, or choose the Group button and search for and select a Confluence group. Repeat this for all people and groups you want to be able to edit the calendar.
  5. Select OK

Only the people listed under These people can edit this calendar in the restrictions dialog, the calendar's creator, and any space administrators (who can see the calendar), will be able to edit the calendar, including adding events, editing existing events, and changing the restrictions.
