Atlassian Cloud SSO (Single Sign-On) for Azure AD using SAML

Jira SAML Single-Sign On(SSO) for Atlassian Cloud allows you to securely login using Azure AD credentials. Single Sign-on (SSO) into your Atlassian Access or Atlassian Jira Cloud Account with any of your existing Identity Provider credentials for enhanced security and features using our module.

You can refer the steps to configure Multiple IDPs and Domain Mapping in Atlassian Access from the video or documentation given below


1. Atlassian Access Subscription

Atlassian Access is an additional subscription applied across the Atlassian cloud products like Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Work Management, Confluence, Bitbucket, etc. So it is needed for Single Sign-On(SSO) or any Cloud Service which comes under Atlassian Access.

2. Domain Verification:

The first step of Atlassian Access starts with the Domain Verification Process to enforce SAML SSO on the managed user accounts. This process verifies that you own a valid domain for managing the user accounts and use the same domain name for the email addresses.

In this document, we will demonstrate the setup in two parts.

Part 1: Configure SAML SSO between Atlassian cloud as SP and miniOrange as IDP

Part 2: Configure SAML SSO between miniOrange as SP and Azure AD as IDP

Part 1 + Part 2 : Testing SSO between Atlassian cloud as SP and Azure AD as IDP using miniOrange Identity Broker.
