After selecting this option, click the "Create / Update" button to apply view / edit access control for the page.

View / Edit Permission Options That Can Be Modified

You can select one of the following options to set page restrictions.

Public

There is no restriction for pages with this setting. Anyone can view and edit. This is selected by default.

If the entire GROWI is set to cannot be viewed without logging in, even if the page is set to be public, it cannot be viewed / edited without logging in, and even if the page is accessed, it will be redirected to the login screen. Any logged-in user can view and edit it.

Pages with this setting will not be displayed in the page list or page search results.

Only users who know the page URL can view and edit the page.

When you don't remember where the page is, follow from "Recently Created" on the home screen.

If it's the page you created, it will be displayed in the page list.

WARNING

On v5.0 or later, you need to be careful when handling pages with this setting. For more information, please read Anyone with the Link.

Only Me

Pages with this setting cannot be viewed or edited by anyone except you.

Whether the page is displayed or not in the page list and page search results of users except you, depends on the settings in the security settings of the management page. (described later)

By default, the page you created appears in the page list and page search results.

Specific Group Only

Pages with this setting can only be viewed and edited by users belonging to a specific group.

Whether it's displayed or not on the page list and page search results of users who don't belong to the group, depends on the settings in the security settings of the management page. (described later)

By default, the page you created appears in the page list and page search results.

View Permissions That Can Be Set on The Page

Descendant pages of a page /Page1 can only have the same or more restrictive viewing permissions. (v5.0 or later).

The following example is a table showing what kind of viewing permission can be granted to the descendant page /Page1/child by the viewing permission of/Page1.

View Permission for /Page1 View Permission That Can Be Set on /Page1/child Possible/Not Possible
Public Public
Public Only Me
Public Specific Group Only
Public Anyone With The Link
Only Me Public
Only Me Only Me
Only Me Specific Group Only
Only Me Anyone With The Link
Specific Group Only Public
Specific Group Only Only Me
Specific Group Only Specific Group Only (Depends on the parent-child relationship of the group)
Specific Group Only Anyone With The Link

In v5.0, pages with this setting are displayed only to users who know the path link or permalink.

However, if you create a page with permissions other than this setting (public, specific group only, etc.) with a path that is under the page with this setting, it will be displayed in the page tree.

For example, if you have a /Page1 with "Anyone With The Link" set and you create a/Page1/Page2 with a "Public" permission, you can create a /Page1 in the page tree. And /Page1/Page2 are both displayed.

Be careful with the path of the page when using "Anyone With The Link" setting.

Control Showing Page List and Search Results for Restricted Pages

Even with "Specific Group Only" setting, the child pages can only have the same viewing permissions as the parent page, or only applying permissions with more restrictions (groups with a narrower range of members).

The following example is for the subordinate page /Page1/child when the "Engineering Department" group is created in the child group of the "Company" group and the "UI / UX Team" group is created in the child group. On the other hand, it is a table showing what kind of viewing permission can be granted.
