Scroll versions - anonymous/reader

Hi All,


The Scroll Add-on states in the Roles it defines there should be a "Reader" category. My screen shows no such category. I have Doc-Admin, Author, Reviewer, and that's all.

Further, as I have multiple versions of doc in each space on my Confluence site, I want anonymous users (users not logged into Confluence) to be able to access the Scroll add-on, and select what version of the doc they want from the drop-down menu. Is this possible to setup?

Hi JG.

Reader is a user who is not part of Doc-Admin, Author and Reviewer roles. Readers can't be defined as with other roles. Anonymous user are always readers.

The only way for anonymous users to be able to see the version picker and select versions is to use Scroll Versions in combination with Scroll Viewport. You can try this out by enabling support for versions in Viewport configuration of the space and then marking which versions should be viewable in Viewport in Scroll Add-ons → Versions screen.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
