Confluence anonymous access have bigger rights than logged in users


I have a problem with access to confluence.

In our company we have 500 license jira tier and 10 license confluence tier.

Anonymous user can view all unrestricted spaces and pages in confluence. Whenever a user logs in he gets lesser rights than anonymous user - he CAN'T EVEN VIEW unrestricted pages. I know that it's because users are not added to confluence-users group. But... there any possibility to grant logged in user the same rights that anonymous user has? Both of these don't use a license, so there is no loss, just convenience.

what does your confluence Global Permissions Setup look like?

you may also check the relevant space persmissions

everything is described well here

Ok, that was really simple. I must have been in a bad mental condition to miss it :)

I granted browse access to group "users" (the same that contains all jira users), and it now works perfectly! Thanks for the hint!
