we try to configure confluence which special persmissions.
simple Case details:
Very simple so far
Now we wanna set some security permissions:
Our problem is point 2 in dependence to 1.
We don't use LDAP authentication.
Thanks a lot!
Panos is absolutely right. You have no way of knowing that anonymous1 is not anonymous2 - the whole point of anonymous access is that they do not log in. Without a log in, you can't know who a visitor is, so you simply don't have any data to decide on different behaviours.
There are things you can do with proxy servers or networking that could add more information to a session so that you could make access decisions based on it, but Confluence works with users only, so you'd have to start coding to allow it to make different decisions as well.
But it is possible the create a, for example, readonlygroup and put a user in. This group should see headline 2,3 but, and thats the problem, it should NOT see the "Profiles", "Persons", "Favorite", -Buttons on top of the page.
confluence-user (view complete space1)
confluence-admin (view / edit complete space1)
confluence-readonly (view navigation with headlines 1,2,3)
anonymous (view navigation with headline 1)
Yes, that's not "anonymous" any more - you know it's someone to whom you have given an account (even if it's shared, so you don't know which human it is, it's still not anonymous)
Now you know who they are, you can apply the permissions like they're any other user. But, you still can't do anonymous1 and anonymous2 because you have only set up one user.
And because they are now a logged in user, they get to see profiles, persons, favourite and so-on.
