Managing Google Apps passwords
Google Apps passwords are managed separately from Atlassian Cloud, because it's an external password management system. You can reset a user's Google Apps password and manage your users' password policy in Google Apps administration.
Managing Atlassian Cloud users
You can still create and manage non-Google Apps users in Atlassian Cloud - you might choose to create non-Google Apps accounts for external contractors, for example. However, Atlassian Cloud users still count toward your user license limit, just like Google Apps users. This means that any users you create may increase your bill.
Managing Atlassian Cloud passwords
All users, including those managed through Google Apps, must enter their Atlassian Cloud password to use RSS feeds, REST API access, or WebDAV uploads.
All Atlassian Cloud passwords your users create will stick to a generic password policy that we've set. This policy can't be changed by administrators. Users can reset their Atlassian Cloud password by following the instructions in Manage your profile and password.
Set default application access
After you enable Google Apps, you can set up which applications new Google users have access to, and which groups they're placed in when the users are initially created. See Manage application access for full details.
