Anonymous use of a discussion forum in Confluence

For an anonymous use (which means: nobody knows and can backtrack who wrote a new article) of the discussion forum, we need a solution. Is there a way to achieve this in Confluence ?

FYI, we use Confluence 4.2.2

If you do not want to make the complete Confluence site available for public access you can set up a space for your forum and assign the relevant space permissions to 'Anonymous':

See under https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF42/Assigning+Space+Permissions for your version.

Thanks Norbert.

If I configure so, can users add/edit/comment under this space without login in ?

Would you consider making the site public access? That way, people could comment without loggin in.

Thanks Matthew for your suggestion.

But, I can't make it with public access.

To achieve that you have to grant following permissions to 'Anonymous':

  • View Space (that's trivial)
  • Add Pages
  • Add Comments
