Start using Atlassian Access

Before you can use Atlassian Access, you first create an organization, and then verify a domain, as described below.

Once you create an organization and verify your domains, all the Atlassian accounts with email addresses from those domains become managed by your organization. You can then subscribe to Atlassian Access to apply security policies over all those managed accounts. Your users with those accounts will be subject to the policies you've set, no matter which Atlassian Cloud products they log in to. 

For example, if you've verified the domain and you enforce two-step verification, any user whose email address ends with will be required to use two-step verification when they log in with their Atlassian account.
