I have x number of Confluence users and y number of Sharepoint users. There are more Sharepoint users than Confluence users. I'd like to use Sharepoint Connector just to embed Confluence content in Sharepoint so that anyone logged into Sharepoint can see the content (but not modify it). How many user licenses will I need: x or y?
Yes, that is what I am saying, The group of users who are SharePoint authorized but not Confluence users can view pages as anonymous (no login), but you need to enable view rights for anonymous users. You can allow anonymous users to add comments to Confluence pages, but then you have no idea who made a comment.
Yes that is the only way it CAN work. Otherwise, each user who needs to view, would require a login and consume a license (unless you go to a one group login with limited access – a solution, but not a great solution).
As long as your Confluence server is behind a firewall, anon access is then limited to those users inside.
If you want to authenticate all users but restrict their rights, then you would need two groups, one for Confluence users and one for Sharepoint users (both members of confluence-users), BUT that means you need enough licenses for both.
I haven't read up on the technical details of how it's done. The macro page does state that it enables "bi-directional content embedding," though. I'd just like to enable people to view formal documentation from Sharepoint even if they are not Confluence users.
