'Edit page' permission to an anonymous person with the link

There is a Google Docs feature I adore - allow a document read/write access to a user with the link.

Any way I can share a single page (space, blog, whatever) with a single anonymous person? A workaround maybe?

The matter is we have many clients and we do not want to create a user for each of them. But we want them to leave feedback (or just read the draft document) on the designs and solutions we provide them.

There is no such feature and no workarounds so far.

Perhaps you could try to raise a feature request at our issue tracker: https://jira.atlassian.com

Perhaps you are right.

There are two approaches for consideration:

1. Read only user

Restricting access at the user or group level is not the same as providing anonymous access. Anonymous access does not count towards a licenses and your content would be public facing.


2. Assigning space permissions to anonymous users

  • To assign a permission, check the box for the required permission.
  • To deny a permission, uncheck the relevant box.
  • To bulk assign or revoke anonymous user permissions, choose either Select All or Deselect All from the Actions dropdown list.

Choose Save All to apply the changes.

Note: You cannot grant space administration rights or page restriction rights to anonymous users.

I hope this response was helpful.

Unfortunately this is not what I am looking for.
