How to make Confluence public by editing database?

Hello,

How can I make confluence public (in other words, allow anonymous access to all pages) by editing database?

I haven't been able to find related tables and I am not that good with postgres. I can't use administrator panel because authentication messed up.

This is an urget issue for us so, any help would be useful.

Thank you.

Even if it is possible, I do not recommend you to do it that way. If you have problems with authentication you can try Restoring Passwords To Recover Admin User Rights and enable anonymous access from the admin console afterwards.

Hi @Ali,

We had a similar need - we wanted to use Confluence for collaborating on content yet point customers to a publicly accessible and branded website for documentation.

Last week we released Instant Websites for Confluence to improve the experience when our customers browse product documentation. Traditionally, customers would browse our documentation direct on Confluence (arijea.atlassian.net). We found the page load time problematic and the mobile style less than ideal.

With Instant Websites our documentation is automatically converted from a Confluence space to a static, mobile responsive website. That is then deployed to Amazon Web Services. 

In short, with Instant Websites for Confluence Cloud every time a customer wants to read the documentation they get it immediately, regardless of the device they are on. 

I thought it may be of use. If so, I would love any and all feedback on how we can improve the product.

Thanks Ali, have a great day,
Nick
