This page describes how the Scroll Viewport for Confluence app accesses content on your Confluence site.

Defaults

The Scroll Viewport for Confluence app is represented by its own user with the name Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud. This user is automatically created and assigned to the group confluence-users when you install the app. Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud is an app user and does not add to your licensed user count.

The confluence-users group is part of the Default Space Permissions that are applied whenever you create a new space or a new Scroll Document. If you haven’t changed the default space permissions or edited Scroll Document restrictions, Scroll Viewport for Confluence will automatically have all necessary permissions to work in that space or document.

Giving Access to a Space That Excludes confluence-users

If the space you want to add to a Scroll Viewport site has space permissions that exclude the group confluence-users you will need to add the user Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud individually.

To include the app user in your space permissions:

  1. Go to the space

  2. Click Space Settings

  3. Switch to the tab Permissions

  4. Click Edit permissions under the table Individual Users

  5. Type Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud and click Add

Make sure View is ticked. This will give the app user permission to read the space content.

Giving Access to a Document with custom restrictions

If the Scroll Document you want to add to a Scroll Viewport site has custom restrictions you will need to add the user Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud in the Restrictions Manager.

Make sure View is ticked. This will give the app user permission to read the document content.

If you’re using Confluence Page restrictions on pages these will restrict the app from reading those pages - unless the app user is added for reading there as well.
