SSO 2.0 - Crowd or SAML for Data Center

May 14th 2019

We have extended the scope of the plugin to include SAML for Atlassian Data Center products and Crowd single sign-on for Server and Data Center products. Now, you can use Crowd as your identity provider and get the single sign-on functionality across your Atlassian products, even those located in other domains. Alternatively, you can connect your applications to major identity providers that implement the SAML 2.0 specifications.

The Crowd SSO works for Crowd version 3.4.0 or later.

SAML for Atlassian Data Center 2.0.1

November 22nd 2016

We 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.

SAML for Atlassian Data Center 1.3.1

October 11th 2016

We are thrilled to announce the release of the SAML for Atlassian Data Center add-on! 

Seamless single-sign on with using a SAML Identity Provider

Using the add-on you can easily integrate your existing Jira Software Data Center, Jira Service Desk Data Center and Bitbucket Data Center instances with a SAML 2.0 Identity Provider, to allow seamless single sign-on for your users.


Easy to install and configure

The add-on can be installed in an existing instance running a supported product version. After installation, SAML authentication can be configured in the 'SAML Authentication' administration screen.

Please see the user documentation for a full list of supported platforms, and detailed instructions on configuring SAML single sign-on on your instance, best practices and troubleshooting information.
