Is it possible to setup Confluence in the way that users that come from Internet will be prompted with login screen and users which come from internal network will be automatically confluence-users?
The internal user would still have to login... I'm not sure what you want to achieve here.
I guess you could set something up that would force external users to login and let all internal users in without authenticating. But not with confluence alone. And people would still have to login at some point, either when they need to access a space with restricted access or when they want to create new pages or spaces. I would also strongly recommend against letting anonymous users create content in your confluence installation.
I have the same question. Years ago (Confluence 3.0.1) we had this set up for our intranet instance of Confluence, though I'm having trouble seeing how (within confluence). The idea is that internal network users are employees and most of the site is accessible without logging in (95%), only content editors really need log in, and all users from outside of our network. Basically, we want to allow anonymous access (view only) from inside our network, and not from outside our network. All users are required to log in to view the instance from off campus. I'm confident it is possible, since we did it way back when.
That's the point - to do it within Confluence, you have to have a mechanism that allows Confluence to identify when a user is inside your network. There are so many variations possible on this, there's no way to code a generic approach, and the vast majority of Confluence users don't need it anyway. So there's nothing in Confluence to do it. If you have this working in Confluence already, then someone has written something and added it to Confluence. It'll probably be taking information from the network connection the user is using as well
Thanks for the quick reply Nic.
My user directory is AD. Not using SSO (yet!).
and I'm not too sure on the networking but we can config firewall's by IP as necessary.
I've enabled anonymous view access to our Confluence Intranet. This is only available on the internal network. I want to put it public, but require a login when public, but keep the anonymous internally.
Any advice appreciated.
