License model


We want to buy only limited user licenses who will write/contribute to confluence.

The remaining users will only use it to consume the data (read-only).

I am aware that anonymous access for read-only should work, for which we dont need to buy license. However I dont want the entire world to be able to read the public spaces/pages.

Can someone please advice if this is achievable?

Many thanks

Hi @sidddharth joshi 

Welcome to community.

In cloud, you can configure IP allowlisting. In server, you can install behind the firewall.

Hi @sidddharth joshi

while we do not have many details about your environment probably the new feature for External Collaboration in Confluence Cloud could be worth having a look at:

As this feature is brand-new I am unsure about the licensing details but it could be a good idea to ask for the specifics in the thread linked above.

Also I am not sure if you are using a Cloud product - the presented feature is, as far as I know, one for Confluence Cloud.
