A user is someone who has the "can use" permission set. This is set in Confluence Global Permissions. It can be assigned to groups or to users directly.

so what happens for user unamous ? can they ask questions?

As of https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/QUESTIONS/Permissions

Anonimous users can veiw, but not ask, vote or answer on questions

Does that mean that an anonymous user has to be a registered user and therefore one seat on the licence?

As the workaround - you can create a public user (put the login and password on the dashboard) with limited permissions - and call him anonumous. So that will be only 1 user that can count into your licnence - but you will be open to spam / improper usage / etc and will not know who did that. So you should think about security for such approach.

see that was my initial though. I will have customer's asking questions and looking at information but, do not want to count as license as they might just come in ask a question and leave and probably not come back again. Will it work if a person gets a license ask a question delete their account and let another use that same # of the license?
