Configure Redirection policy:

Redirection Rules allow you to control how your users log into your Atlassian application. You can control which users see the login page vs. using SSO to login into your application. This can be managed using different parameters such as email address domain, groups, or user directory. We will learn more about configuring redirection rules in this section.
You can set up multiple rules and change the order in which they’ll be matched. The first rule satisfied by a user will decide if the user will be allowed to perform SSO and if yes, then which IDP he’ll be redirected to. You can also set up a default fallback rule in case none of the rules are satisfied.

Step 1: How to Configure Redirection Rules

To configure redirection rules,

  1. Click on the Configure button below the “Advance Option for Atlassian SSO” app listing on the Manage Apps window window
  2. Proceed to “SSO Redirection Policy >> Redirection Rules for jira”
  3. Click on the Add Rule button.

Step 2: Creating a New Rule

Here are the options required for creating a rule

  1. Rule Name:
    This is a unique identifier of the rule. This field allows only alphanumeric characters.
  2. Rule based on the Email Domain:

  4. If you select the email domain, you’ll be asked to enter the domain of the users who should be redirected to the selected IDP.
  5. Rule-based on User’s Group:

  7. If Group is selected, you’ll be asked to select the user groups to which the user belongs while creating a rule. If the user’s group matches the configured one, the rule will be satisfied and the user will be redirected to the configured IDP.

Step 3: Reordering the Rules

When the user enters the username on the login page, his username is processed against the order in which rules are added. To change the order you can use the up and down arrow on the Redirection Rules page.
The order of the Default Rule can’t be changed as it works as a fallback rule and always executes at the end

Configure SSO Template policy:

  1. Custom Login Template:
    This template defines the UI of the login page. The template is written in HTML so you can easily redesign the login page, add instructions, logos, multiple options for user login, etc

  3. Custom Logout Template:
    The user will be redirected to this template after signing out. You can show custom messages or action items after the user logs out. To enhance the logout Page UI custom logout templates can be used to change the message after Logout and show a custom message. The template is written in HTML so it’s easy to understand and change. You can edit the logout template as per your requirement.
