I need to make a Confluence page public (i.e. accessible to people with no Confluence account) but not indexed in Search Engines. (Making it public appears to be easy enough (see http://bit.ly/1UGhJcy).)
In this forum I read a possible solution which is to append "?os_username=<username>&os_password=<password>" after the URL (see http://bit.ly/1XzZ2qd). But it seems to me that this solution is based on the recipient having a username and password; which is not the case for me since these people have no Confluence account.
Is there a way to make a page public but not indexed?
The usual trick here is to ask bots not to crawl it. They still can, but all the big players respect the request.
Note that on Cloud, Atlassian have that set for you, and I don't think you can change it (yet. There's a request at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CLOUD-5915 )
