Using Terms and Conditions


Organisations large or small find it vital to have acceptable use policies around how users interact on their intranet to prevent unwanted behavior. The Terms and Conditions add-on allows System Administrators to configure and manage their policies and users who have accepted. 


Once installed, Terms and Conditions can be configured by navigating to the Terms and Conditions configuration page under CONFIGURATION.

The Terms and Conditions configuration page present the user with four fields.

  1. Title - This is the title of the page presented to the user. 
  2. Content - The content of the use policy or terms and conditions. This can be entered and plain text or as HTML
  3. Accept Button Label - The word that appears on the acceptance button
  4. Decline Button Label - The word that appears on the decline button

Special Note

The user can enter text in the title, content and label field, in their preferred language.

User View

At first login, once the Terms and Conditions have been configured, the user is presented with the following view:

Requesting the user to re-accept

If policies change or the terms and conditions have been updated, the System administrator can request confluence users re-accept the changes by resetting their initial acceptance. 

The System Administrator can reset individual users or all users.

Additionally, a System Administrator can see exactly who has accepted the user-policy or terms and conditions by listing all accepted users.

Authentication with SSO


Confluence Terms and Conditions now works with SSO Authentication. This was developed assuming the user is using SAML Single Sign On (SSO) by and configuring Microsofts Azure AD.

An SSO authenticated user, will proceed to the Confluence site after accepting the configured T&Cs if there is a "samlSessionIndex" attribute on the HTTP Session.
