How to provide external resources access to our company confluence space ?

Our company is starting a new project with much input/updates from external parties. Can we provide them access to our Company Confluence project space without them having an Active Directory account within our company ? 

(sorry for my ignorance - i'm a novice user)

Hi there,

you can try to add their users to confluence directly.

I hope that helps.

Let me try to make it more concrete:
we want to give User-1@company-X.com access to a confluence space at our company-A: https://company-A/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?spaceKey=EAMPLE. 

What do we need to do for this 'User-1' in order to gain access and contribute to this space ? (without that user having an Active Directory entry at company-A)

Can you add them directly to Confluence?

Like here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/add-and-invite-users-138313.html

And ideally, they would be part of the Jira user directory.

Then you can add them to groups or project roles circumventing the active directory users/groups.

Let me know if this works. If not we'll think of other ways.
