This page explains how to create a viewport. A viewport provides a special view on pages or blog posts in a space and can be accessed through a URL, that can be configured when the space is created.
- Scroll Viewport checks permissions (system-level and space-level) and restrictions (page-level) before outputting the pages. This means if a page or blog post is not visible to the user accessing a viewport, Scroll Viewport will render a 403 error page.
- If you specify a (sub-)domain name different from the Confluence domain name, you have to make sure that the Confluence system is accessible under that name.
- If you specify a (sub-)domain name different from the Confluence domain name, users have to login to Confluence under that domain, too. Reason for this is, that the browser will not send the session cookie to the viewport, because it is a different server name.
Accessing the Viewport Configuration
Viewports can be managed on system-level and on space-level.
Space permissions required
To access the viewport configuration on system-level:
- Choose the cog icon at top right of the screen, then choose Add-ons.
- Choose Viewports in the left hand panel.
- As result the list of all viewports in the Confluence system will be displayed.
To access the viewport configuration on space-level:
- Choose Space Tools > Scroll Viewport.
- As result the list of viewports in the current space will be displayed.
