Child page does not inherit page restrictions from parent page
This article only applies to the Atlassian server platform. Learn more about the differences between cloud and server.
A child page is supposed to inherit the page restrictions from its parent page, but, for some reason, it does not inherit any restrictions.
Double confirm that the parent page has restrictions applied. Else, create a new page, add some restrictions to the page and create a new child page under it. The child page will inherit those restrictions by default. This will be depicted by an open red padlock icon. Note: Only view restrictions are inherited, Edit permissions are not inherited.

After rebuilding the ancestor table, you need to flush the "Inherited Content Permissions" cache in Cache Statistics, otherwise, the inherited permissions may not be applied immediately to all pages. You may also need to rebuild the content index so that the restriction will take effect.
