This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Permissions and Restrictions
I have about 4-5 users who create content for our wiki, but about 90 users who need access to the generated content. All the users are within my organization. Can I give all the 90 users access without buying a license? (will buy license only for the 5 users who needs read and write permissions?)
License JIRA Service Desk (only licenses are needed for Agents - you could probably even only have one license), then create a JIRA Service Desk Project for each Confluence Space you want to give access to.
In the Project Settings / Knowledge Base for each Service Desk Project, select the "Everyone with access to your service desk can read articles without a Confluence license. This option is best if you want to share knowledge base articles with your customers." option.
Now unlicensed Confluence users (even though they're logged in to their own accounts) can view Confluence articles in Confluence.
In the Project Settings > Knowledge Base you can link the appropriate confluence space.
When you select “Link space” you will need to enter/select the appropriate confluence space
When you select “Link space” you will need to enter/select the appropriate confluence space (not shown)
As the final step you will need to select the permission to be restricted
No. If they can log in, then they need a licence, even if the account can only read stuff.
But, you can allow "anonymous" access to spaces. People will be able to read such spaces without logging in at all, so they won't take up a licence.
Yeah, I missed the cloud part. So the alternate solution would be to have one user account for general access by all those who do not need edit rights (restrict that user rights to view only), then you have 9 user slots for those who need more access. This approach will require all to log in, keep anonymous users out, and keep you within the 10 user license.
Now I have no idea whether Confluence cares how many locations are logged in via one account. I know I am often logged in from multiple locations, but no idea if there is some sort of limit.
Hi, Confluence collaborators! As part of #Confluence-Collaboratory month, we’ve created a very special Mythsbusters segment, where we're dive into an interesting myth and uncover the truth behind i...
