Diagrams of possible configurations for user management

Still need help?

The Atlassian Community is here for you.

The aim of these diagrams is to help people understand each directory type at a glance. We have kept the diagrams simple and conceptual, with just enough information to be correct.

Some things that we do not attempt to show:

  • In most cases, we do not attempt to show that you can have multiple directory types mapped to Jira at the same time. We illustrate that fact in just the first two LDAP diagrams.
  • We have not included a diagram for Confluence's legacy connection to Jira database.
  • We do not attempt to show all of the possible configurations and layered connections that are available now that you can use Jira as a directory manager.
