In Confluence you can set an anonymous sharing of certain parts of the page. This allows users to access certain areas without having to log in. I'd like to do the same with SharePoint - is that even possible? I know that I can share something with individual users, but I have to add them all individually, etc.

What I want is that I just take the link of my Sharepoint Wiki and give it to the customers - otherwise I would have to invite each employee individually. What are the possibilities?

Set the permissions of the wiki to "Anyone". Instructions are here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-files-outside-your-organization-with-anyone-links-53e91027-fb8e-4a6e-a3e4-5df4be32e38a


Please do as following:

  1. Navigate to your SharePoint Wiki page and click PAGE > Page Permissions. enter image description here

  2. Click "Stop Inheriting Permissions" and then click "Grant Permissions".

  3. Under "Get a link", select the link type with "no sign-in required" and then click Copy. enter image description here

A guest link will be created and be valid before expiration date. It allows external users to have access to the page without signing in.

  • I would like to authorize an entire document library or website library, that external user can access the library with an normal link. Nov 18, 2019 at 15:06
  • @SvenRösser I'm afraid that's currently not possible since external users are prevented from the Online environment by default. A guest link is required if you want to share with external users. Nov 19, 2019 at 9:54
