Site is setup for anonymous access, but login window unfortunately still comes up...

I have a documentation space I have setup and configured for anonymous access (both at the space level and globally). When a user goes to a linked URL for the home page for the space, they get the Login Page.

I'd like the user to go (without a login) to the space.

The "Global Permissions" - Anonymous access has "can use" active.

The space's "Anonymous Access" is set so "Anonymous" has "View" active.

I've also verified that the server base URL is the same URL being used by the page being accessed.

Any help that can be provided would be appreciated!

The Home page set for the Space was set with restricted access - meaning ony a defined group had access.

Removing the restriction allowed Anonymous access again.

Thanks go to Andrew and another tech at Atlassian Support for figuring this out!
