Internal Documentation

Control who gets access to your docs

Protection Types for Your Pages

Documentation can be either internal/protected or public. To have both you will need two projects.

Public Docs: Docs can be viewed by anyone.
Project Members Only: Only users with ReadMe accounts can view.
Site-wide Password: One password for the whole site. Anyone with the password can view. Cookie lasts 7 days.



The protection level in Trial Mode is always Project Members Only.

Login Expiration

Authentication persists via browser cookies. You can set a custom expiration period under "advanced options" in Variable Defaults to require your users to log in again after a certain timeframe. The default setting is shown below.
