SSO for Atlassian Data Center release notes
SAML for Atlassian Data Center 2.0.1
November 22nd 2016
We are pleased to announce the release of the SAML for Atlassian Data Center 2.0.1 add-on. This is a major version release, including new features and bugfixes. Due to this, it's incompatible with earlier product releases. Please check the marketplace listing for an exact list of compatible versions.
Users are now updated from LDAP directories on log in
Whenever a user from an LDAP directory logs in using SAML, the user details will be updated from the LDAP directory according to the configuration in the 'User directories' page. This could include creating or renaming the user, as well as updating the user's details and group memberships.
This allows SAML authentication to work with directories configured as 'Internal with LDAP Authentication'. This change also means that user changes in synchronized directories are visible immediately when the user logs in, rather than waiting for the next synchronization to occur.
Remember user logins
User logins can now be remembered in their browsers. When using this setting users will be automatically logged in again, without having to re-authenticate with the SAML provider. This is a global setting, configurable on the SSO 2.0 screen.
