Use IP-Allowlist to filter Confluence Cloud Anonymous traffic?

I happened to notice this [CLOUD-2636] Allow customers to configure IP allowlist and wondered if it could possibly be a way for our Cloud Confluence to control anonymous access.   This would be important to us to allow our users without Confluence licenses to access content,  similar to how anonymous access to on-prem Confluence systems (behind firewall) work.  Also thinking we could potentially use our Okta implementation as the app that gets whitelisted?

thanks for any pointers!

Hi @Sjoquist_ Carl ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

IP allow list provides access to confluence over secured network by allowing only secured traffic and whitelist the ips. I don't think you can use this for anonymous users. Anonymous basically means you are not authenticating to confluence at all and the page is available for any one on the internet. If the concern is regarding allowing non licensed users then the other option is by configuring the users in jira . Refer the below URL for more info.

I hope the above info helps. Have a good day!
