Share space between organizations or individual external users


We would like to have a shared confluence space between other organizations or even with individual users that are not part of Atlassian.

Is this something possible?

If not, any ideas about how to do this?

Many thanks in advance

There's a couple of options.

First, have a space that is visible to the users you set up for those organisations and individuals.  You'll need to check over your existing spaces to ensure that you do not accidentally grant them access to other spaces.  (For example, if you use "confluence users" to say "can see space" and you put them in that group to let them log in, they will see too much)

Second, allow anonymous access to that space.  They won't need to log in to be able to see it.  Two caveats - don't allow "write" for anonymous, or you will end up with untracked and possibly malicious edits.  And anonymous means "everyone who can see your confluence", not just your list of organisations and individuals.

Thanks for your quick reply.

The second options is not valid since open spaces will be "visible" for anybody on Internet (and we do not want that).

About the first option you mentioned, I'm think you misunderstood it.

Imagine that our organization is and we have there an space that we want to share with users from .

Is it possible to create a group with people from Organization2 and configure their rights?



Yes, that's what option 1 was.  You'll need to add the people from Organisation2 into your user directory for the Confluence you want them to see, then add them to the space you want to share.


How can I add people from other organization? I have been searching for it but I could not find anything



Go to user management and create new accounts for them.

Ah ok, thanks!

I was thanking in something like organization2::user or something so there is no need to create the account (and therefore there is no need to pay extra money for users).

Many thanks

No, the Atlassian licence is users on a service, not "user can use every Atlassian system everywhere"

Many thanks for your answers!
