Redaction is the best approach to sharing private content securely.
First off, it’s good to note that Confluence has three levels of security built-in. Global permissions determine who can access Confluence. Space permissions determine who can view and collaborate in a space. And page permissions determine who can view and/or edit content. Sometimes though we need a little more flexibility.
Redaction, otherwise known as sanitisation of classified information, is the blacking out or deletion of text in a document.
Redaction for Confluence provides granular content security, allowing content such as words, paragraphs and table cells on a Confluence page to be hidden from all but a select group or user. It works for blogs too.
You can then export a redacted version of the page or blog to PDF or Word document. Thus ensuring that people can collaborate on classified information securely while protecting that content from prying eyes.
