How can I set the default page for an Atlassian Cloud site?

I have an Atlassian site set up with JIRA Software and Confluence. One of the things I want to host on the site is public Wiki pages to allow customers to download software updates and view documentation. I don't want them to have to log in.


If I type the URL of my cloud instance into a browser I get directed to the login page for my site, how can I change this so that users are directed to Confluence instead?


I'm aware I can change the landing page for logged in users to confluence and I can change the default home page in confluence to a specific page in a specific space but I am asking about the entire cloud instance? How can I get to direct to Confluence instead of a login page?

Via user management for Cloud you can set the default application for all users (JIRA or Confluence) - see

But I don't believe this will work for anonymous users (or its a bug), so I would suggest you raise this directly with Atlassian support.

Alternatively, consider using something like Instant Websites for Confluence by Arijea to publish a public support site.
