Is the there a method to embed a link in Confluence that can only be opened from Confluence?

I have some web content that I only want to be available when the user click on a link in Confluence. Is there anyway to use OAuth or SAML or ?? to lock down the link so that only an authenticated confluence user can access the external web page.


I have control over the web page so I can do some kind of a hand shake with confluence before serving up the content.

Hey Steve,

You can actually setup an OAuth protocol for this. Here is the article with all documented steps to set that up in Confluence.

Hope it helps, have a great week ahead.

The link is old and does not point to the latest version of the software.  Is there a way to do this in the latest 7.0? We need to embed our Confluence pages in our custom application via API.  How can we do this?
