Inside | Intranet

 With WordPress it is not possible to limit access to specific pages of a site. However, if you need pages or an entire site with restricted reading access, you need to make a new site request. You will then get a new site that includes all the features of a standard site but for which you can limit the reading access to the group(s) of people of your choice.

The creation and management of groups is done via You will find documentation on the help page (French only).
Important: Make sure that the LDAP and AD option is enabled, otherwise the group cannot be used with WordPress
