How do I restrict a page to a limited audience?

Step 1

Go to the page you would like to restrict. From the Tools drop down menu, select Restrictions.

Step 2

In the popup window, select to either Restrict Viewing or Restrict editing or both.

Step 3

Type in the user or group name you wish to have view or edit the page.

Or you can select yourself by pressing the Me button.

Step 4

After making your selections you still have the option to Remove restriction. You can always come back at a later date to remove any restrictions you have in place. 

When finished making your selection, press Save to finalise your selections.



View Restrictions cascade down to child pages > any child page of a view restricted page is also view restricted.
Edit Restrictions don't cascade down > only applies to a single page, sub pages must also be edit restricted if desired.
In order to provide Edit restrictions to a user they must also be on the View Restrictions list. (ie. Your user will not be able to edit a page if they can't view it) 

Please note that you may need to update the parent page, please see the screen dump below:
