Audience-specific pages were previously known as the feature Access control.
User - Page viewers who authenticate to view your page and subscribe to notifications
Group - Groups of page users that have the same permissions when viewing your status page
What are audience-specific pages?
In Statuspage, you can create public, private, or audience-specific pages to control your page audiences. Audience-specific is a page type with pre-specified users and groups who have viewing and subscription permissions.
Pre-specified users and groups can view audience-specific pages. The main reasons you may want to use an audience-specific page is for security and usability because you can:
- Set permissions for who can view these pages and what notifications they can receive.
- Choose what components and information is visible so that users and groups see only what is of interest to them.
Here are a few use cases that may warrant an audience-specific page:
- When customer instances are hosted on single-tenant infrastructure
- When your customers are grouped together on clusters or shards
- If internal employees need individual access to view a private, internal status page
Note: Users currently need their own unique usernames and passwords to authenticate for audience-specific pages.
