Share a page or blog post

You can use the Share option in Confluence Cloud to email people a link to your page or blog post. This is a great way to invite your team to collaborate or to share information with a large group of people.

When a page has view restrictions, sharing it with someone won’t automatically give that person access to the page. Before sharing, check the page’s permissions settings to make sure the person you’re sharing with will have access.

Share by email

To share a Confluence Cloud page by email:

  1. Open the page in Confluence Cloud.

  2. Select the Share button in the top right.

  3. Start typing the name of a person or team to see a list of suggestions, then select the right ones from the list. You can also enter a complete email address to invite someone outside your organization. Repeat this step to add multiple recipients.

  4. (Optional) Add a custom message.

  5. Select Send.

In addition to an email, Confluence Cloud users will also get a notification in the Confluence app.

To copy a link to a Confluence Cloud page:

  1. Open the page in Confluence Cloud.

  2. Select the Share button in the top right.

  3. Select Copy Link, then paste the link into an email or anywhere else you want to share it.

Who can I share with?

Pages and blog posts can be shared with individual users and teams in Confluence Cloud. You can also share with external users by entering their email address and inviting them to join the site.

What is a team?

A team in Confluence is a group of people with an Atlassian account, organized around real-world team like Product Design or Engineering. Anyone can start or join a team. Learn more about teams

Inviting external users

When you share content with someone outside Confluence Cloud, we send them an email inviting them to join your site. They’ll be prompted to create an Atlassian account before they can access your page or blog post.

When you invite an external user, you grant them access to Confluence, not just to your page. We add them to the default product group and start billing you for the new user.

In some cases, your invitation will be sent to an admin for approval first. This happens when:

  • Your site doesn’t allow existing users to invite others to join.

  • The recipient’s email address domain, like @gmail.com, isn’t on your site’s list of approved domains.

If an admin declines your request, you’ll be notified by email. The external recipient won’t be notified.
