can I force read users to authenticate with needing a license?

We would like our user to authenticate themselves before they can read the content of our knowledge base. Is there a ways to achieve this without having to buy a license for each external user (our customers)?

Hi @Lenny Dauw

My team makes the Scroll Viewport app, which let's you publish your Confluence Content as a help center:

Right now, the help site it creates is publicly accessable on the internet but we're working on a new authentication feature that would protect the content behind a login. Those people logging in will not need Confluence users.

If you're interested, I can see if we have room in the beta so you can test it out and give us feedback.

Let me know.

Hi Matt,


It would be great if we could access the beta. Ideally we would like to use Azure B2C authentication, which our users already use to access our applications.
