Is there a list of Anonymous user features

I'm looking for what an Anonymous user can access/see in Confluence and JIRA. I see a lot of specific questions about the Anonymous user but I'm looking for a holistic list of what can that type of user do/see in the applications.

I'm afraid it's not really available. The answer is "what ever you let the anonymous users see".

If you look at the Confluence space permissions page, anonymous is one of the options, so you can enable whatever activity you like on a space-by-space basis.

Jira is more complex, but again, there's an "anyone" in the group lists. Use that in a permission scheme, and anonymous users get those permissions in the projects you use it in.

Also check the global permissions for their access.

Thing is, if you don't add "anonymous" to anything, then the answer is simple - they'll be able to see the login screen, and the "no permissions" pages. Everything else, you'll have added!
