Add or remove whiteboard restrictions

Confluence whiteboards are in beta. Reach out to your Product admin to enable this feature. Explore further details about Confluence whiteboards here.

Much like Confluence pages, whiteboards provide you control over who has access to edit and view your whiteboards. You also can control what level of access someone receives. For example, you may want to share a whiteboard with a colleague but don’t want them to change your content. Whiteboard restrictions allow you to control these scenarios.

Whiteboard restrictions aren’t available on the Free plan.

Setting whiteboard restrictions

By default, any whiteboard you create doesn’t have restrictions. To set restrictions on a whiteboard:

  1. Select the lock icon in the top navigation.

  2. Select from the options in the menu.

  3. Press Apply to have the selected restriction take effect.

If you select “Anyone in this space can view, only some can edit” or “Only specific people can view or edit”, you will then need to select the specific users to whom you want to provide access.
