What are " anonymous " users in jira ?

Some log patterns that I see in my JIRA instance has users : anonymous , what exactly are these users ?

example :

2015-06-18 09:07:44,884 ajp-bio-8009-exec-79 INFO anonymous 547x66030x1 - /browse/JC [jira.projects.web.BrowseProject] Specified project id to browse, but it is diff to current project.  Most prob a permission violation (or it doesn't exist)

They are hits from people who have not yet logged in.  JIRA doesn't know who they are because they have not told it.

Hey Nic - you mean something like this ; A user has a hyperlink to some particular issue or project - he just accesses it using the url before logging in ?

Yes. Spot on.
