How can you setup a login disclaimer message at signup point?

We using Confluence 10.05

We want to provide login access to users outside of our organisation. 

We would like to have a usage disclaimer agreement dialogue box appear every time an external user logs into our Space. 

Can you have a message appear after they login as a banner? or flash page which they would need to click on in order to go to the main homepage? How do I set this up? We only want this setup for external user groups. so that internal users do not have to go through this process or have to view this page. 

Otherwise is there a way to setup a Licensing Disclaimer type window when external people sign up for access, to appear once? Similar to what you get on Software licensing terms functions. So it only appears on first time they sign in?

Is this for cloud or server? What's your actual confluence version, is it 5.10?

Would you use a paid plugin for this?


It is for Server. We are using Confluence version 5.10.8.

If we can avoid paying for a plugin that would be great. But open to all solutions if we have to pay for a plugin.

Thanks :-)

Hi Dominique,

This is definitely something possible to achieve using ScriptRunner for Confluence

What you need is a to listen for the PageViewEvent and then evaluate if the user is anonymous, if so then display the disclaimer dialog.



Hi Rafael,

Thank you for your help! Is this also possible if we are using Cloud? We are looking at now moving our Confluence from Server to Cloud. 

Do you need to know code language to use ScriptRunner? or can any user use it with help of forums? 



On another note, I am not sure what you mean by "anonymous" users. Do you mean if in the case outsiders are Signing Up independently from us? Which will not be the case. We would create a new user and allocate a username for them and then send an email to them through the Confluence system, which sends them a signup page where they can allocate their own password. I think this is the default setup of Confluence.  In this case, would "PageViewEvent" event you mention still work using the ScriptRunner?

Cloud does not allow ScriptRunner (or other add-ons) the flexibility to do that sort of thing.

To use ScriptRunner effectively, yes, you do need to know how to code, and how to use the internals of Jira's code, but although it can look complex, it's not as hard as it seems, and yes, with the help of documentation and forums, most people can use it well.  It also tries to help you by providing off-the-shelf functions that are commonly used, so you don't have to write scripts every time you want to do anything clever.

An "anonymous" user in Atlassian's software means "someone who has not logged in, so I do not know who they are".  If someone has signed up and logged in, they're no longer anonymous.

The PageViewEvent will happen for everyone, no matter how they logged in.

Hi Nic,

Thank you for your suggestion. We will look into this option.
