Changes that your users will notice

Your users will immediately see the following changes if you unsubscribe from Atlassian Access:

SAML single sign-on

If you have SAML single sign-on configured when you unsubscribe from Atlassian Access, your users will no longer be able to use SAML single sign-on when they log in:

  • Users who had an Atlassian account prior to when they were required to log in with SAML single sign-on will simply revert to using their Atlassian account password to log in.
  • Users who have only ever used SAML single sign-on to log in will need to set an Atlassian account password. They are not told that they need to set a password when trying to log in. However, after a failed login attempt, an alert will prompt them to consider resetting their password if experiencing login issues.

Note that users do not get an email to tell them that your organization has stopped using SAML single sign-on.
