Confluence Dashboards for external customers

We are looking at the Confluence Dashboard doc link https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Dashboard

We need to do the following:

1. Only external customers get a specfic dashboard. (Do we create a user group for external users only) We want external customers to go to a specific landing page. Currently have SPACE key ISC and would like that to be their landing page.

2. Is there a way to import the same security group from JIRA to Confluence? jira-users / jirs-developers / jira-administrators? Since we share the same LDAP/AD structure.

3. Can Confluence follow the same Project permissions structure for each user at login for views/rights/spaces/dashboards etc?

1. There is only one dashboard. Users see only the content that their permissions allow them. In Confluence Admin | General Configuration, you can set a site wide home page that users see when they login.Also the Confluence logo will link through to that page.

2. Yes, you can set it up that way. Though confluence-administrators and confluence-users appears to be hard coded, so it's better to use those groups instead. Confluence has no concept of "confluence-developers"

3. Hmm. Not quite sure what you mean here. Currently a JIRA project and Confluence space sharing the same project/space key would require their permissions setting up twice.

#3. Ok so we have to give space/link permissions for each user separately in confluence
