Is it possible to give non-Atlassian users access to an Atlassian page?

noel March 27, 2024

In our group, we would like to give some users acces to a specific Confluence page, without the need to create a Confluence-account.

For instance by using an API call with our app we would like to give users acces to a specific confluence page. 

  • Would this be possible? 
  • How would this be possible? 

Thanks in advance!

Hello @noel 

Public links are great if you want to share just a couple of pages. But it's always one page at a time. Also, anyone with that link will be able to see the page.

If you want to make pages available to non-Confluence user AND/OR protect the access, you can use an app.

Consider Scroll Viewport by K15t - you can build a static site from your Confluence content. The site can be either public OR protected by SSO. In other words, you control who has access via your SSO setup which is independent from your Confluence permissions.

(you can, of course, build two (or more) sites - one public, one private - and determine which content goes where).

Hi @Kristian Klima , 

Completely overread your reply Yesterday! Nevertheless, thank you very much for your reply. 

Scroll Viewport comes close... However, still not exactly what we are searching for. 

Our goal is to only give internal employees access to specific Confluence pages by clicking on a help button in our app. 

At the moment we have the following needs:

  • Non-Atlassian user should have access without the need of creating an account 
  • Non-Altassian users should only be given acces if they have access to our app
  • User can only have acces to one specific page attached to our internal app button 
  • Users are only allowed to read
  • User cannot view other pages or the menu

@Barbara Szczesniak Also thanks to you! However guest accounts would not be a viable option for us. 

  • Would it perhaps be possible to open or download a specific Confluence page via an API connection? 

Thanks in advance everyone!

Do you perhaps know if it would be possible to restrict acces of the public links? Our goal is to only provide access internally to our group. 

  • Could access be restricted to a specific group by opening Confluence through an API call?

@noel You might consider adding those people as guests (though you really shouldn't use this feature for people within your own company). Refer to the following pages:
