Authenticate Confluence Cloud URLs

We're looking to use confluence cloud to store client specific documentation for our system.

Our users will already be logged in to our system. 

We want to embed a document search inside our system, and allow users to click through to see the articles on confluence.

How can we give users a link to view the article without requiring them to sign in to another site (i.e. confluence cloud)?

We should have control of the logins for confluence. I have looked into using basic authentication - but I haven't been able to get it to work.

If you enable anonymous access to the pages you want to display from your Cloud instance, the users won't have to log into Cloud. It sounds like you want some security on the Cloud pages, though, since you mention client specific documentation.

What is the system that you are looking to embed the Confluence pages in?
