How to make personal blog visible to any authenticated user?

I have created a blog under my own space and the space does not have any special viewing restrictions and neither did the blog post itself appear to have any. However when people attempt to view the post they get a 404.

Rather than mess around with individual permissions how can I make the whole blog, and all subsequent posts, viewable by any authenticated user?

Hi Fred, This is unusual for me, because if the page was restricted it supposed to show "not permitted" message instead of error 404 page not found, could you please provide a screenshot and your atlassian-confluence.log to us so that we could investigate further? Thank you. Regards, Wayne Wong

Hi Fred,

This sounds to me like a network/proxy issue. Are you able to replicate the problem using a vanilla confluence with proxy or any other kind of redirection in front?

If the problem is not the proxy, I recommend to go inside you personal space -> space tools -> permissions and check if only you have permissions to see the contents of the space.



Thanks for following up - I am not the administrator our confluence installation so I can't install a vanilla instance. I have checked the permissions and added the group "confluence-users" but that did not make any difference. What I did in the end was make my personal space public and that solved the issue. This is an internal Wiki (not accessible outside our intranet) so that works for the time being.

Sorry for my tardy response but I don't have access to the logs since I am not the administrator. There were no restrictive permissions and I added "view" permissions to the group "confluence-users" but that did not help. In the end I made my personal space public which worked; this is an internal Wiki and not accessible outside our organisation's intranet so it is an OK workaround for now. I will do more experimentation (as much as I can without being an administrator of that instance)

To clarify above - it never shows "not permitted" - it always says 404 until I made my personal space public.

How to use Confluence Cloud for stakeholder management

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
