Protect documentation with Confluence user login but enforce customers to see only Scroll Viewport view
We would like to expose the documentation produced via Scroll Viewport to our customers after they login instead of making this publicly accessible.
From our understanding, the Scroll Viewport access control simply inherits from the corresponding Confluence space and it's ok for us to create Confluence users for our customers.
However, we can't yet figure out a way to make sure that our customers can only access the Scroll Viewport view but not the Confluence view which doesn't look nice.
For instance, if customer attempts to access https://confluence.abc.com/display/DOCS then they should be auto-redirected to the Scroll Viewport view, e.g. https://onlinedocs.abc.com/docs (just assuming we have set up the custom domain https:/onlinedocs.abc.com for the online docs).
May I ask how this can be achieved?
thank you for your post!
Sure this is possible and is described here.
The example in the article is described with anonymous users, but is also working with user-groups. If your customers are signed up, put them simply into a group e.g.: "customers" and restrict the Confluence UI for users which belonging to the group e.g.: "employees".
Let me know if that worked out for you.
Thanks and have a nice day.
I think it is described here now: https://help.k15t.com/scroll-viewport/latest/server/set-viewing-permissions-165941881.html.
