We are excited to announce the general availability (GA) of the external user security feature. It is now available to all customers with a subscription to Atlassian Access. Learn more about Atlassian Access.
External user security enables you to apply security controls to users who collaborate with your company but who you don’t manage in your Atlassian organization.
Two-step verification: An extra security step is enforced when external users try to access your organization’s Atlassian products. They are required to verify their identity every seven (7) days by entering a temporary one-time password sent to their email address.
API token access: When you block API token access for external users, they are unable to use API tokens to access the products through product APIs. Learn more about API tokens.
Note that these security settings are also applied on external Confluence Guests. Learn more about Confluence Guests.
The GA experience has just started rolling out so you can expect to see this feature in Atlassian Administration (admin.atlassian.com) within the next few weeks.
In response to customer feedback, we’ve also prioritized single sign-on (SSO) enforcement and the ability to edit the verification frequency as future capabilities for the external user security feature. You can keep track of these and other future enhancements on our Cloud roadmap.
If you previously used external user security during the early access program (EAP), thank you for being a part of bringing this feature to life! And if you’re new to external user security, we hope you find it valuable to securely collaborate with your external teammates. Learn more about the feature in our support documentation.
